RADFORD (WSLS) - Radford University is creating a new push for student health, and they have a $32 million project to prove it.

The new 110,000 square-foot recreation and fitness center is on its way up on campus, and it is scheduled to open in the fall. It will have everything from an inclined track, to free weights, to basketball and racquetball courts. 

The new building has been in the works for about five years, and those who led the way with this project are hoping this facility will lead the way for health and fitness in this region.

The planning committee visited a number of university fitness centers, and they say this will have the best elements from everything they saw. They are already using this as a key marketing tool for incoming freshmen and potential students who visit the university.

Radford also appointed Barry Miller as the director of the Department of Recreation and Wellness, a position that is new to the university.
