“With the weather being bad with rain, snow, and cold, we can (now) be inside,” he said.
Clark State also has outdoor walking paths.
“When the weather is perfect, we can go outside and go a longer distance on those trails,” McCulla said.
The idea for the project came from both students and campus staff while orders for development came from the Human Relations department and College President Dr. Jo Alice Blondin, according to McCulla.
Clark State has also invested about $30,000 in equipment and upgrades for its Wellness Center.
These initiatives seek to “improve the health” of faculty, staff, and students, McCulla said.
“We just want to try to provide them a better opportunity to live longer,” McCulla said.
