I have been using the bumper plates and platforms extensively both at the RPAC and Jesse Owens North. They're great additions to the facilities. But I have one small suggestion that would, in my opinion, greatly improve the use of the bumper plates. Last semester, the bumper plates were stored on a horizontal rack at the RPAC. This semester, with the addition of new plates, vertical racks more like the ones already present for other plates replaced the horizontal rack. The horizontal rack takes ...
Thank you for your comment card regarding the bumper plate racks. I agree that the vertical racks would probably be a little better, and originally, we had intended to purchase those racks (just like the ones our personal trainers let us borrow!). However, at the time we made the purchase, Rogue had these on back order, so we made the decision to buy the current ones instead. Doing this allowed them to at least have their own separate racks and not get mixed in with the ...
Hi RPAC - I used the Lactation Room today (B40K), and the soap dispenser was empty + the motion-detecting paper towel dispenser were not working. But those issues aside, BRAVO to the RPAC for this awesome lactation room. I'm in the midst of visiting and reviewing every lactation room on campus for my blog (http://osumilkmama.wordpress.com/), and the RPAC room is one of the best i've seen so far.
We will get right on top of getting the soap and paper towels fixed in the lactation room. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. Thanks for the kudos on our room – as a nursing working mom, I also understand how hard it is to find good spaces to do what we need to do to feed our babies!
The Fist Aid kit at the Ground Floor counter needs to be replenished.
I've been cut twice while at RPAC including today and there is no antiseptic of any kind in the kit. This won't cost much and might prove to be very important.
Thanks for the feedback regarding the first aid supplies at the Sport Shop. I have communicated this issue to our safety coordinator, as that location is supposed to be stocked with alcohol wipes. It seems that location may not be being checked for that item as frequently as it should. We are working to rectify the situation overall and have restocked that location for now, as well. All of our operations student managers do carry first aid items in a fanny pack, as well, in t...
Over the past few weeks I have noticed rust building up at JON. It is mostly on the ends of the bars making it hard to get weights on and off. Is there any way this can be cleaned?
Thanks for your comment about the Olympic bars at the Jesse Owens Center. We are currently working with our maintenance crew to decrease the amount of rust and moisturize the bars. We appreciate your feedback and please look for all new Olympic bars coming next year!
I went to the Yoga on the Oval on Tuesday, 6/18. Overall, I really liked the session and as an employee it was nice to do over my lunch break. My only negative comment is that it was really difficult to hear the instructor. Because it was outside and there were other people around and the instructor was also doing the yoga positions it was really hard to understand as she gave us directions. A mic and some speakers would be super helpful, though I understand maybe difficult to set ...
Thank you for your comment concerning Yoga on the Oval. We agree that sound on the oval has been an issue in the past and are currently looking into resolving it. Oddly enough, it is pretty difficult to find a proper sound system that is portable, battery operated, AND has headset mic capabilities. We understand the sound out there is not ideal, but still think the program is worth having for members and students without it. Hopefully we will have a resolution for outdoor...
I have a suggestion about the Ping Pong (Table Tennis) area. Because the tables are set at an open area at the 2nd floor, the balls are very easy to be hit out to the Ground floor, and hard to be fetched. This problem occurs many times, and bother Ping Pong players a lot.
I think some possible solutions could be moving the table to the previous closed locations, or use some net or cloth to cover the open fence at current location.
Hope this could be considered.
Thank you for your comment! I've actually been wondering how this move was going so this feedback is exactly what I needed! We wondered when we move the table tennis tables if this would be an issue so I'm glad to know that my fears are true. We have some ideas of putting up netting, as well as some table stoppers to keep the balls in. I expect this solution to occur no later than the end of summer or sooner, dependiing on how fast I can get the materials delivered. I apologize ...
