UU and Champaign Family YMCA Partner for Student Memberships
Urbana University and the Champaign Family YMCA are partnering to offer semester-long Y memberships to full-time students. Effective immediately, all students that reside on campus will enjoy a membership that will enable them to access increased fitness facilities and organized intramural sports. Commuter students will have the option to purchase a membership as well. “The Y is pleased to broaden our partnership with Urbana University via memberships for their students. It’s important for young adults to establish healthy habits, including the adoption of fitness and recreational pursuits that the Y provides to all of our members”, said Paul Waldsmith, YMCA CEO.
