Health & Sport Science students use a metabolic cart, BOD POD, treadmills and cycle ergometers to conduct fitness testing and assessment in the areas of body composition, submaximal and maximal aerobic testing, muscular strength & endurance, and flexibility.

Laboratory courses use this space (2nd floor) to teach and practice assessment techniques and understand the implications of training and disease on overall health and fitness.

Through the observation of real anatomical structures and actively dissecting a full human donor, Health & Sport Science students gain the skills, knowledge and experience to prepare them for their future education and professional opportunities.

Learning in this space (2nd floor) allows students to increase their understanding and appreciation for human structure, how we can analyze the structural consequences of disease and dysfunction, and how we can establish new studies based on anatomical findings.

Health & Sport Science students experience hands-on learning through the use of free-weights, BOSU, Swiss and medicine balls, battle ropes, functional training equipment, a power rack, cycle ergometers and a treadmill. By applying their knowledge of personal training, exercise physiology, and strength and conditioning, students can enhance their practical skills.

Upper-level courses use the equipment in this lab (6th floor) to complete research projects.

Thanks to a gift from alumni Dave & Norma McCarthy, Health & Sport Science students are able to collect dynamic research data alongside faculty mentors. 

Student research helps drive knowledge forward, and the state-of-the-art equipment available in this lab (6th floor) helps enhance learning experiences by allowing for more in-depth, scientific exploration.

This second-floor space is primarily used by students in the Physical Therapy doctoral program.

Dietetics students benefit from this state-of-the-art learning kitchen, made possible by ProduceOne and its owners, Gary & Erv Pavlofsky. The University also commends Nancy (’03) and Mark Poeschl for their support in establishing this state-of-the-art facility (5th floor).

Students develop key skills through the use of four cooking stations and a dedicated learning space, which promotes innovative teaching and learning.
