“The Cardinals Activities Board is looking at what they could do, and how we could work with collaborating with different departments on campus — and we saw that today with fitness day,” Canaan Daniels, associate director of programming and events at the Setzer Student Center, said. “The Recreational Sports Center has amazing opportunities for fitness for people of all different interest levels. It's a great opportunity for students to come and learn, one on one, about all the different options that we have here.”
