Wallman Wellness Center serves record number of patrons

Published: 27 August 2009

The Wallman Wellness Center served more than 2,467 customers on Aug. 25, the first full day of school, setting a record for the largest number of students, faculty and staff served in one day.

According to Brent Parmer, associate director of the center, the first full day of classes is typically the busiest day of the fall semester. The Wellness Center staff also held an event, titled Get Rec'd, that may have contributed to the high number of patrons.

The Get Rec'd event introduced members to different classes, activities and events at the Wallman Wellness Center. Staff also set up information booths, tables and games, including Plinko, giant Yahtzee, Drunk Goggles, a football skills challenge and a 3-on-3 basketball tournament.

Parmer said that last year was the busiest year in the eight-year history of the Wellness Center. "We are already 5,000 visits ahead of last year's pace two months into the fiscal year," he said. "Our projection is that we will see our 2 millionth visit this spring."

The Wallman Wellness Center saw their 1 millionth visitor at the beginning of the 2007 spring semester.
