Smith Wellness Center
A major component of NMCC’s reopening plan is to limit the number of individuals on campus. Therefore, the Smith Wellness Center is implementing a phased reopening:
Phase 1: NMCC Staff, August 17th
Phase 2: NMCC Students, August 31st
Phase 3: Community Members, TBD
NMCC will continue to monitor the state guidelines and open the Wellness Center to community members when it is deemed safe to do so.
The $6.4 million Smith Wellness Center is designed for the amateur and avid wellness enthusiast in mind. Our 4,000 square-foot facility offers a modern and vibrant space to get moving and get fit. Additionally, in 2019 NMCC remodeled the adjoining gymnasium and locker rooms to offer better amenities and more fitness features like an indoor track. The “no excuses” approach includes an affordable pricing structure and extended hours, providing the flexibility for everyone to incorporate fitness into their busy schedules. Finally, Wellness Center staff make cleanliness and friendliness their top priority.
Center Director Tom Richard and his helpful crew are always happy to welcome you to the gym. Tom can guide you in the safe and proper use of the fitness equipment and encourage you in your wellness journey!
Funding for the center was provided primarily from Mary Smith, a Presque Isle native now living in California. Her gift prompted more donations to complete the work from foundations and private business donors in Aroostook and beyond. Mrs. Smith’s vision is to improve the health of the future workforce—our students—as well as the current workforce from the surrounding area through this state-of-the-art wellness facility.
