Hello. Welcome to Boston University. My name is Lauren Burke, and I'm a junior here at the College of Communication, studying public relations. Today, we're at the Fitness and Recreation Center here at Boston University.

Every full time student here at the university is guaranteed with a full year membership. Come with me, and we'll take a look around. Our fitness center is huge. It's over 18,000 square feet, and contains equipment from ellipticals, to treadmills, to bikes. We have everything here. We have a dance theater, an indoor track, and even a two story rock climbing wall.

Our Aquatic Center here at Boston University has a lazy river, recreational pool, and a competition pool. So whether you want to work out with friends or just hang out, we have you covered. We have seven courts where you can play badminton, volleyball, or basketball, and more. We also have multipurpose rooms where you can take yoga classes or cycling classes. Those have been some of my favorite experiences here at the Fitness and Recreation Center.

Thanks for checking out Boston University's Fitness and Recreation Center. As you can see, it's a great facility for many of our students here on campus. I hope to see you all soon.
