    State Gym opening delayed

    until Spring 2012. Student fees will be partially credited. I was really hoping it would open this semester...

    I was for the remodel, but not the new additions. Basically people in the UD area should just have walked over to Lied. Lied was only busy for a 2-3 hour period everyday.

    Re: State Gym opening delayed

    So will I get my $90 back from Fall 2011 even though I graduated?

    No surprise. It takes a long time to thoroughly destroy a landmark building, let alone rebuild it.

    Re: State Gym opening delayed

    Are there any pictures online of what the whole complex (State and Beyer) look like as of now? I haven't been back to ISU since February and I think there was a skywalk then but couldn't remember what else..

    Kind of interested to see what the inside looks like

    Was it a $90 increase for the renovation?

    EDIT: This semester is Fall 2011, so are you graduating in December?

    I'm poor. This $90 will do me wonders, and Lied is still available. I consider this a win.

    Re: State Gym opening delayed

    I for one am excited about the new facility, the wooden floor bball courts will be awesome, and the weight/workout equipment and area looks to be more extensive than Leid. Leid has been getting busier and busier every year with the increasing enrollment, I've been going to Ames Racquet and Fitness lately but when I used to got to Leid I can remember plenty of times where I either couldn't get on a bench press or had to wait a substantial time, really don't want to think about how busy it will be this year with the record number of new students.

    Re: State Gym opening delayed

    Not too mention the basketball courts are always full from about 6-9PM every night. And now that they scan ISU cards i can't use my old ISU card to get in I had to buy Alumni Association and pay the fee for the rec. I hope they don't do that to State Gym.

    As of winter break, State Gym and Beyer will only be accessible to card holders with the only access point being at State Gym if I'm not mistaken.

    And you should have to pay to use the facilities. No different than getting a membership at Ames Racquet & Fitness or a YMCA. Iowa State letting just anyone into Beyer pisses me off. They should be paying to use it just like students do.

    Re: State Gym opening delayed

    I think you were suppose to be an Alumni, which I am, we should have some sort of benefits. I would rather pay ISU than Ames Raquet and Fitness so thats what I do, but if I want to go shoot hoops or something I should be able to use one of the many empty indoor courts ISU has, if I am an Alumni. I believe the price comes to around $30 month for membership after Alumni fees and the $15 year card fee plus whatever the year or semester fees are for the rec.

    I don't understand the Alumni Association side but I do know students get hit with a $71? fee for recreation each semester. I'm not opposed to alumni being able to use it but they should be paying at least that same amount.

    The $89.95 credit students are getting is the increase that was to pay for State Gym usage. Since it isn't usable, students aren't getting charged for it (hence the credit).

    I donate some money to our YMCA. During the day it's never busy. Should I be able to just walk in and shoot hoops? No.

    The alumni association has yearly fees or for around $1000 you get lifetime membership. This is a requirement before any Alumni can even get a membership to Lied. Then you have to pay the rec. fees $60 semester or $30 month...other plans available as well. This I'm fine with but believe Alumni should be able to use some of the services or buildings free of charge. This being a benefit of being a Alum. Remember We all paid the fee while we were in school as well, and pay plenty of taxes for living in Ames.

    And I would say yes you should be able to use the Y if you have donated money to it. Depending on the amount of course. ISU I have 4 years into, and will be paying for it the next 20.
