I’m gonna be spending $27,000 on CU when my daughter starts there this fall, and they can’t have a pool? But they’ll have freakin’ softball!!


My son (a junior) is on the club team

Sucks for them, but I guess we don’t know the results of the study yet

There is a whole freaking lake sitting over there. Why do the snowflakes need a pool?

Assume you're talking about the one in Fike. We used to
like to go over there in the 80s to check out the girls.
Guess they'll have to go jump in the lake now

And your daughter will be sliding down that little damn, but probably won't tell you about it.

Since when have pool and lake been interchangeable

A lane pool is a much different thing . It's not for lounging.

I'm actually quite upset by this. I have many good memories of going to the fike pool


a lot of folks are upset about it

Facilities are old and outdated and are way behind other universities.


BUT, they have the Nation's best football facilities!

We enjoyed intramural water polo at Fike. Not having a pool at a major university seems foreign to me. SMH


This seems dumb to me, but

IIRC the pool was not even Olympic-sized. If it's the same pool from when I was at summer camp in the 1980's, it's got to be pretty dated by now. Maybe they'll put in a new one soon. That would be a nice gift from IPTAY, actually, should someone care to lobby them for it.


I remember Fike being rebuilt in the early 2000’s.

I’m guessing it’s not the same pool from the 80’s...but don’t know for sure.

that's the rumor and what most believe on campus

and they are definitely closing the pool at the end of July

they got rid of one of the pool's revenue generators, when they did not renew the agreement with the local kids' swim team to let them practice in the pool

Campus rec has made several weird decisions in the past few years...

for example, they spent thousands of dollars putting in a sauna and steam room on the pool deck just over a year ago

My kids always go to The CAT Invitational there every winter which is for 6-18 year old swimmers. The university is closing the pool on 7/31/19 indefinitely for "feasibility studies" which means it will no longer be in use. This is a complete joke in my opinion to close it down. WTF.

There are petitions being signed by several swim teams to keep it open. I doubt the University cares enough though.......

THIS IS B.S.!!!
