University of Houston-Clear Lake continues to make changes to accommodate students including changes to the university’s Fitness Zone. In addition, adding Campus Recreation to its list of programs, the Fitness Zone also welcomed Assistant Director Tabitha Radwanski this spring.

Radwanski graduated with her bachelor of science in kinesiology and health and her master of arts in kinesiology from Sam Houston State University and has worked in campus recreation for four years. Since her arrival at UHCL, she has created plans to expand recreational activities in hopes that intramural programs can be established, collaborated with other programs to plan the CAMPUS Recess event in the fall and worked with students, faculty and staff to incorporate Campus Recreation into the Fitness Zone to encourage a healthier lifestyle. 

Students automatically gain membership to the Fitness Zone, but UHCL alumni are also welcome to purchase memberships.
