As you flipped the calendar to 2007, you undoubtedly made New Year’s resolutions to turn on the treadmill, pound the pavement, or, at the very least, expand your exercise routine beyond remote control workouts.
But maybe these efforts fizzled after the initial January rush. Or perhaps you simply haven’t gotten around to starting your new routine. There is good news: UI Recreational Services offers University of Iowa faculty, staff, and students—and the general public, for that matter—a variety of activities in facilities across campus, allowing people the opportunity to get in shape, learn new moves, make social connections, and have a little fun while they’re at it.
We're curious just what UI faculty and staff members think about spring break. When the students head for home, downtown becomes a ghost town and you could roll a bowling ball down the walks of the Pentacrest without hitting a faculty or staff member. Where IS everybody? Tell us how you spend spring break through this brief survey: https://survey.uiowa.edu/wsb.dll/243/springbreak.htm.
The Taking Flight exhibition on the third story of Macbride Hall features nests, skeletons, eggs, and much more that celebrates the world of birds, including an interactive computer station that plays hundreds of bird songs.
