Through a unanimous vote, the Students’ Association Senate passed a resolution voicing its support for student access to the Miller Wellness Center during the summer, so long as students are registered for classes the coming fall semester.

According to a sponsor of the resolution, summer Wellness Center access has been in the works for years.

“This resolution represents a project that’s been a couple years in the making,” Government Affairs Chair Zebadiah Johnson said. “Throughout this year, [Finance Chair Sarah Cook] and myself … have been working to try and get this accomplished.”

In addition to Johnson and Cook, Shari Landmark, director of recreation and fitness at the Miller Wellness Center, is a sponsor of the resolution.

“Over the last couple weeks, we finally had an agreement with Shari at the Wellness Center that if you are enrolled in the fall semester, that preceding summer you will not have to pay for a membership,” Johnson said.

During previous summers, students were required to either be enrolled in summer courses or pay a membership fee of $50 per month.
