So I was trying to find some more information about Ball State's new Irving Gym, which should open this August. Specifically, I wanted to learn about the rock wall. I learned to climb while I was in Mexico, and it would be nice to start climbing again; however, I'm a horrible climber and very weak, so I'm wondering if there will be classes offered to low-level climbers like me. Anyway, as I was looking for images and information, I found this. Basically, there's going to be a whole section of the new recreation complex devoted to helping students enjoy the outdoors. I can't imagine anything more fabulous. There will even be organized trips and fun activities to take students biking, rafting, and climbing. Wild.
Also, check this video out. It's a "fly-through" of the new facility. AHHH!!! I'm so excited! (If I don't exercise a LOT this year, some one PLEASE call me out on it!)
