  • Slippery Basketball Court in ARC east wing

    The floor of fifth basketball court (starting from the north) in ARC east wing is very slippery. It significantly increases the risk of injury. 

    Is this court maintained in a different way from the other four? The floor of this particular court is visibly in a different condition. 

  • ARC Rowing Machines

    Last Thursday, I informed the staff at the ARC that the rowing machines on the top floor of the ARC had been put together incorrectly (the seats are attached to the tracks backwards). 

    As of last night (Monday), the seats had still to be fixed. I rowed last night anyway with the improperly positioned seat and have a nice big blister on my backside today as a result. It takes 1 screwdriver (flathead) and about 2 minutes to do each one. 

    Please do this today. It takes nearly 0 manpower/effort/should have never happened in the first place. 


  • ARC elipiticals


    Hi! I noticed that over the past few weeks(?) many of the elipticals on the 1st floor of ARC has been replaced with newer versions of Precor. While the new Precors are nice, I really miss the "book stands" on the old Precors.

    The older version had a ledge on the control pad, which makes it easy to mount books, notes, and even computers to entertain me while on the elipticals. The new version has a sleek design but doesn't leave room for mounting anything other than watching the built-in TV program.

    Now I have to fight for the few  Precor EFX 576i up stairs so I can have a stand. Can we please keep some of the Precors that have ledges? 




  • IllinoisNet Wifi at Gym 3

    Both IllinoisNet and UiucNet are not working at Gym 3.  Hope they can be fixed as soon as possible.

  • Poor lighting at Gym3

    The lighting at gym 3 has been bad for more than a year because of burned out light bulbs.  There are a couple more burned out recently which make the lighting even worse particularly at the badminton courts.  I hope they can be fixed as soon as possible.
