The Colgate community gathered at the Trudy Fitness Center on Thursday to to celebrate having earned gold LEED certification, given by the U.S. Green Building Council.

“The Trudy Fitness Center is a great resource for the Colgate community,” said Andrew Turner, director of fitness and programming, and master of ceremonies for the event. “The number of different people I see here, from faculty, staff and the community, and of course, students, is just amazing for a school this size,” said Turner.

President Jeffrey Herbst was in attendance and added: “LEED status shows that Colgate is putting our energy in the right places.” Herbst explained that the Trudy is a model for how the university invests in new buildings and renovations, while also offering a place to promote healthy lifestyles.
