Aqua Fit

Water aerobics is a great way to tone and exercise your entire body without putting undue stress on your joints. If you've tried aerobics classes and felt it was too much for your joints to handle or are looking for something new, come jump in the water! Classes focus on toning, strength building, fitness and cardiovascular endurance.

Aqua Fit classes are led by experienced trainers and held in six week sessions. All classes are free for students and Marcovich Wellness Center members or are $45/session for non-members.


Learn to Swim

Learn to swim offers students, staff, and faculty an opportunity to improve their swimming ability in the water. Let us help you refine your stroke or learn a new one.

Special Events

Each semester the pool hosts a number of special events in addition to our normally scheduled programming. Events have included a movie in the pool, fun and float, and numerous others. Have an idea? Let our aquatic staff know, and we'll see what we can do.
