Keeping The Pool At School

April 2, 2010

It’s funny how you appreciate something more once you realize it might be gone. In all of my days at MacEwan, I have never taken advantage of the school’s pool. I’m not even sure why, considering:

a) My tuition makes pool use free  b) It has a sweet hot tub (perfect for a fun, social post-study break)

A few weeks ago, MacEwan considered shutting down its pool. All of sudden, a group of enraged students came forward and spoke out against the issue. One facebook group, a series of discussions and a protest later, the students won their battle. MacEwan is now keeping its pool open for at least another year.

The sad part about this debacle was that I didn’t even notice or care about the pool before. It took a major rally and a threat for closure to make me value MacEwan’s pool. It has so many obvious benefits, including exercise and stress-relief. So, my advice to other students – check out all the awesome facilities  MacEwan has to offer. You might be pleasantly surprised.
