#CSurec updates

CSU Recreation Center Update:
from 9/1/20

Dear CSU Rec Center Faculty, Staff, Community Members and Friends:
As you are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant disruption to our everyday lives, as well as to the operation of businesses and organizations around the world. Cleveland State University continues to keep a cautious watch on the developments regarding COVID-19 in order to implement the best approach for safely and responsibly repopulating campus. More specifically, a considerable amount of thought has been directed at how to prioritize the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff who need to come to campus throughout the Fall semester. 
With these priorities in mind, the difficult decision has been made for the CSU Recreation Center to reopen to only CSU students during the first phase of reopening. This partial reopening will remain in effect for Fall Semester 2020. A decision about subsequent phases of reopening will be made closer to the end of the semester. We know our current circumstances are not ideal, and we want to be as accommodating as possible with regards to purchases or balances on your account. 
You may allow any memberships/services/balances to remain on your account and we will extend the expiration date(s) out upon our full reopening. If you would like a refund for any months of membership purchased prior to our closure, please reach out to Jason Mandula, Assistant Director - Facility Operations. If you would like a refund for fitness & wellness programming, please reach out to Melissa Albers, Assistant Director - Fitness & Aquatics. We will continue to offer and expand our virtual programming during the Fall semester and invite you to take full advantage of these offerings. A full list of virtual offerings can be found here, including:

We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and disruption of service to our CSU faculty, staff and community patrons. But we truly appreciate your support and patience as we navigate the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic as safely as possible. We will continue to provide pertinent updates as soon as they become available.

Thank you,

Nick Froelich
Director, Campus Recreation Services
Cleveland State University
