The gym is almost always full.
For the gym, it is almost always full. I know that the school is expanding... ie. Elm Hall was built for a reason. Also, I understand that students can work out at any time, but even at low density hours, the gym is quite busy. Trust me, I have been to the gym during all of its hours during the school year. I would recommend building gasp another building or supplementing students with alternative places to work out.
While we wait for this to get resolved, how about moving the bikes, and ellipticals closer together?
It seems that the gym was designed for a student population half of what it is today. It has become worse with the addition of new squat racks and removal of the incline bench and flat bench. There is some extraneous equipment that could be done away with, but the real solution would be to move the aerobic equipment (bikes, treadmills, etc) to a dedicated space so that there is adequate room in the gym. We pay to much for this service to have inadequate facilities.
