"I would really like to use it and because of the delays I should have been able to use it for like a year now," says graduate student Ellen Hermann. "But I guess two semesters will be great, but I really wish I could have been able to use it for longer. But I mean, I don't know how else they would have done it."

The grand opening is set to take place during the first week of classes this fall. Students will be charged $80 per semester to use the facility.
In addition to treadmills, ellipticals, and bikes, the new facility will include a climbing wall, pool, zipline, running track, basketball courts, group fitness classes, and more.
MSU staff say they plan on hiring more than 150 students to help run the rec center.
