ARC Pre-Paid Fees
The Aebersold Student Recreation Center (the ARC) opened in November of 1999 and is now in its fifteenth year of operation.  Campus Recreation appreciates the support of Slippery Rock University students who passed the 1994 referendum and those who paid the Recreation Center fee prior to the opening of the ARC.  Recreation Center fees were assessed of SURE students from 1994-99.  “Pre-paid” alumni have been able to use the accumulated funds to purchase ARC memberships.  Please be aware that the opportunity to utilize “Pre-paid” fees will expire on Tuesday, December 30, 2014.  Again, thanks for your support and GO ROCK!
