|Don't believe the rumours|

Anyone can play, with Campus Rec memberships available to students, alumni, faculty, staff, retirees, spouses, or community members age 18 and over. Details of registration -- which takes place at the Physical Activities Complex today -- can be found in The Incredible Campus Recreation Guidebook. Staff and faculty can register between noon and 1:30 p.m. for staff fitness and fitness step 400-06 only.
The winter guide also contains details of new courses and programs. For swimmers, aquatic leadership courses have been expanded to include bronze star, guard club and tri-cert. Other pool firsts are aqua screening (a short assessment of swimming skills to determine the appropriate level of instruction), learn to synchro, advanced synchro, aqua adults (a program of swimming lessons), and pick-up water polo.
Fitness 101 offers "an easy step towards a healthy lifestyle," and other new fitness classes include skipping, sanity saver, and big, bold and beautiful -- a combination of physical activities and educational sessions for women "in a comfortable environment."
Among the dance options, a new swing class gets underway this term for folks who want to learn "east coast swing, single jive and the lindy hop from the pros." For fans of more esoteric exercise, Sahaja yoga meditation provides an opportunity to "learn how to meditate through the spontaneous awakening of the Kundalini," and Falun Dafa (Falun Gong) promises "profound teachings and highly effective exercises" designed to guide participants "towards higher levels."
Still unsure of what fitness fare to sample? Check out the new conditioning room orientation and assessment if weight training is an option, or sign up for the personal fitness and wellness program, which provides a cardiovascular assessment, and advice from a certified personal trainer.
Students can find part-time employment as Campus Rec instructors, life guards, referees, organizers and conveners, or gain volunteer experience through Rec Pals, by assisting persons with disabilities in "any and all CR programs." Aficionados of archery, fencing, skiing, martial arts or a variety of other sports can join Campus Rec clubs to share the fun.
Whether exercise is a group pursuit or a solo activity, the Cross Canada Challenge is a way to "see Canada on a tight budget...without ever leaving Waterloo," and "win great prizes." To learn more, visit the Cross Canada Challenge bulletin board outside the PAC equipment centre.
Finally, "fear not," advise Campus Rec staff. "You can still sign up for programs after the scheduled registration dates." See the guide for details.
In addition to the regular schedule of ballet, modern dance and jazz classes, Carousel is serving up a new "Dance for Lunch" class. On the menu: "a huge portion of fun combined with a helping of jazz, a bite of modern, a taste of ballet, served with some gentle stretching for dessert. Come and have dance for lunch this winter for a more energetic you," says the dance centre. All levels are welcome. For more information or to register, phone the centre at ext. 3147.
Improvements to the Bombshelter would mean a $4.25 increase to the fee for three terms, beginning this spring. The capital improvement fee would result in a $2.00 increase to the fee, indexed to inflation.
"Anyone interested in chairing either the 'YES' or 'NO' campaign committee of either question is invited to attend a meeting at the Federation of Students' office (SLC 1102) on Friday, January 15, 1999 at 3:00 p.m.," she adds. For more information, contact Peters at ext. 6781 or email@example.com.
Co-op workshops scheduled today are resume writing, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in Needles Hall room 1020, and letter writing, from 11:30 to 12:30 in the same location.
"Co-op Survival Skills: the Sequel", and "Employer/Student Perspective" will be the topics of Career Development Seminars (Co-op 101) held today from 1:30 to 3:30 in Engineering Lecture Hall room 101. The seminars for first-year students will be repeated on Wednesday and Thursday.
A report on entrance scholarships, bursaries, and upper year scholarships will be presented by student awards office staff Brenda Denomme and Charlene Shaw today at the meeting of arts faculty council at 3:30 p.m. in Hagey Hall room 373. The information session is designed to raise awareness among faculty of awards available to arts students, says Shaw. Also on the agenda is the election of a council chair and deputy chair.
