Add ons to the Student Recreation Center

by Cassidy Steadman


A newly built racquetball court and a newly equipped dance studio were recently added to Pellissippi’s Student Recreation Center.


Classes for both activities are available, along with archery, bowling, basketball, walking and others. A schedule for student accessibility is available under “Recreation” on the “Student Life” tab found on the pstcc.edu website, the PSCC SLR mobile app, or at the front desk of the SRC building located on top of the hill behind the Bagwell Center for Media and Arts.


Elaine Armfield, the dance instructor for the last 13 years at Pellissippi, teaches ballet, jazz and modern dance. She earned her master’s degree in dancing from the University of Tennessee. “I have taught many years, and I love it,” said Armfield.


A dual enrollment student of Armfeild’s, Neeley Moore, has been involved with many different styles of dancing for 10 years. Moore says, “I love starting the day off with exercise. It’s a way for me to escape and for my mind to release any stress. Being a part of the class also makes me feel more involved.”

The 24,000-square-foot building that consists of a basketball court, weight room, tennis courts, fields, a volleyball court and other activities now includes a dance studio and will open a racquetball court in November.

Low Attendance at SRC

by Reggie Wilson

Where can you find a workout facility with all the amenities and an array of classes that range from karate to zumba for free?

The Pellissippi State Student Recreation Center is where.

Atop a hill on Pellissippi State’s Hardin Valley campus, stands Pellissippi’s Student Recreation Center.  Students that frequent the recreation center are unsure why more of their classmates do not visit the SRC. “We see the same faces everyday,” said an anonymous student at the SRC.

According to Sean Green, recreation center manager, “Students who do not take advantage of Pellissippi’s SRC resources are missing out on great opportunities to get fit and to meet new people.” Green believes the SRC’s poor student attendance can be attributed to a lack of student knowledge of the facility and little advertising. “We need to promote the facilities better,” said Green.  Green also added, “The facilities could also use an upgrade.”

With the retirement of former SRC director Dan Jones, Green and the SRC staff await the arrival of Jones’ replacement Philip Ems. Staff member Roy Wayne says he is looking forward to meeting Ems.  “I looked him up online, he used to be a punter for Ball State,” said Wayne.

Ems is scheduled to assume his position as SRC director in the coming weeks, just in time for the intramural basketball tournament finale.  Green says his pick to win the tournament is his team, Team Elite.
