Get your Kicks

Memorial’s new Field House has attracted a lot of attention during its first semester of use. St. John’s Mayor Andy Wells, a martial arts afficionado, recently dropped in to tour the facility and try out the heavy bag, while a disconcerted-looking Anne Richardson looks on. The Works, of which the Field House is a part, has proven very popular with Memorial students. Ms. Richardson, the manager of The Works, reported an average of 800 visits by students to The Works every day to use the track, cardio centre, pool, courts and strength and conditioning centre. The Works is also averaging 1,200-1,500 off-campus visitors a week who use the track on a drop-in basis.
