The faculty and students of the Department of Exercise Science utilize several facilities around campus, to accommodate our many and diverse course offerings, research interests, and community outreach opportunities. Our students and faculty spend considerable amount of time and energy in each of the these facilities.
The Department of Exercise Science is housed in the second floor of the Lestle J. Sparks Center, where the faculty offices, Currey classroom, and Honors classroom are located. Additionally, the Sparks Center houses the activity courses. [Sparks Center hours]
Built originally as the Salem Post Office in 1903 and moved intact in 1938 to its present location on campus, Gatke Hall now houses the Exercise Science Integrated Laboratory among other University programs. The Integrated Exercise Science Laboratory now occupies the main part of the first floor, and holds the Biomechanics, Care and prevention, and Exercise Physiology labs.
The F.W. Olin Science Center houses the Departments of Biology and Chemistry. The Human Physiology Laboratory is housed in 104 Olin Science Center. This is where the Human Physiology students perform their laboratory work.
In addition to other university science programs, Collins Science Center now houses the Human Anatomy Laboratory and the iScience Laboratory, designed for interdisciplinary collaborations among students and faculty.
