Stevenson Athletic Center Now Open to Employees
The Stevenson Athletic Center is currently open to students and staff, with hours posted on bardathletics.com. Users should present their Bard ID at the front desk when entering the building. The pool is available for lap swim on a reservation basis. Please visit the website for more information.
Starting on September 1, the Stevenson Athletic Center will reopen for community use through a membership system; all patrons will be required to show proof of vaccination. Hours will also be reduced for community use; more information will be available in the coming weeks on bardathletics.com. All fans at indoor sporting events will also be required to show proof of vaccination to be allowed entry to the building.
Virtual Water Coolers
The Staff Mentor Program Committee hosts virtual water coolers to provide an opportunity for support and connection among staff who work remotely. Staff can casually drop in and out and enjoy the camaraderie that comes from sharing a space and purpose. We know that Zoom fatigue is real, so please feel free to join us and keep your camera off—no judgement! Water cooler talks are hosted by one of the staff mentoring committee members. Check the calendar above for upcoming events or just keep an eye on your email for announcements from HR. Hope you stop by!
