Happy Holidays from Gentile Hall!!

The Holidays are approaching fast, and Gentile Hall has the perfect gift ideas for your family and friends.  You can purchase a Gentile Hall gift certificate or a fitness class punch card!

Perfect stocking stuffers for your loved ones!  Also don’t forget about our bookstore in the Campus Center.  It has some wonderful gift ideas for family and friends.  Another perfect stocking stuffer is a Starbucks gift card.  Starbucks is located in the Campus Center as well.

All fitness classes will be free for everyone Dec. 16-20 during finals week.  This is a good time to bring friends and let them try a new fitness class!!  Students, stop by and bring a group of friends to a fitness class and destress during finals week!!

Students who are interested in participating in intramurals, please check with Jonathon Bowman for details at jonathon.bowman@maine.edu.

Students, faculty and staff, don’t forget about all the rentals we have in Gentile Hall.  Once we get a lot of snow, it’s the perfect time to get out and enjoy winter activities.  We have snowshoes and cross country skis, boots and poles.  For any questions concerning our rentals, you can stop by our front desk or email Dick Gardner at richard.gardner@maine.edu  for more information.

If you enjoy downhill skiing, we have Big Rock Mountain in Mars Hill and Quoggy Jo out toward Fort Fairfield.  For those who love cross country skiing and snowshoeing, check out the Nordic Heritage Center and Aroostook State Park.  They both have wonderful trails to enjoy.  If skiing is not your thing, then check out the Forum in Presque Isle for ice skating.  Make sure you bring your student ID card for a discounted rate.  They have skate rentals available if you do not have skates.

Make sure everyone checks out our website at umpi.edu/gentile-hall for any changes in our facility hours during the holidays.
