LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – Western Technical College unveiled a newly renovated wellness center Tuesday morning.

It’s a facility they’ve had for over 10 years. Following their nearly $200,000 renovation that spanned the summer months, the facility now has improved lighting, flooring and fitness equipment. Wellness Manager Ryan Monroe said it’s a key piece of allowing students better access to a healthier lifestyle.

“We want to make sure we can create some excitement around health and wellness and be able to meet the students and staff where they are,” Monroe said. “We want to be an opportunity and and an area where they can do that. We can support them along their journey to improve their health and wellness.”

Thursday’s ribbon cutting and open house was available to the public and included a free Zumba class, door prizes and a free massage session.
