UPJ’s new wellness center opens


Just in time to help with those New Year’s resolutions, Pitt-Johnstown opened a 40,000-square-foot, $9.7 million Wellness Center Jan. 5. The center includes a cardiovascular area with treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes and stairclimbers; strength-training equipment; two multipurpose courts; a three-lane running track; a dance studio, and a 30-foot climbing wall.

Cutting the ribbon on the Wellness Center were, from left: James Franz, Tedco Construction; Douglas Shuck, WTW Architects; Joseph Fink, Pitt’s Office of Facilities Management; Barbara Parkins ’80, UPJ Advisory Board; Jem Spectar, Pitt-Johnstown president; Jacob Shirk, Student Government Association; Brian Houston, Faculty Senate; Wanda Dwire, Staff Association Council; Jeffrey Burtner ’10, former Student Government Association president, and the Johnstown campus mascot, PJ the Mountain Cat.
