Nursing student Daniella Scerbo has her sights set on 2015 when the new Active Living Centre is scheduled to open its doors.

“I think lots of people are excited about the new centre,” says Scerbo, who hits the gym regularly to relieve tension from school pressures. “Once I’m done with my workout routine, I go back to studying. I reset and I find that I can really sit and focus for much longer.”

The university’s faculty, staff and retirees campaign runs throughout March. Every year, members of our community support our students by making a gift in an area of their choice.

Donating to active living not only benefits students like Scerbo. The new centre will enhance wellness beyond our campus. It is both a state-of-the-art fitness facility and a research hub into the prevention of chronic disease.

Scerbo, who is also a member of the Bison soccer team, recognizes how important it is to include fitness in her regular routine. A quick workout does a world of good. “I feel very relieved. I feel my stress is gone, my anxiety decreases,” she says. “I feel like I’m in a better mood.”

She’s appreciative to donors for investing in a holistic approach to well-being on campus.

“It’s good to see that (donors) are giving back to their community,” she says. “I think (the centre will) really improve everyone’s experience.”

How your gift shapes our students
