Good news for all of you lazy Grad Center, New Dorm and Patriot’s Court residents who are too lazy to make the trek to the OMAC: the Bear’s Lair has reopened after being closed for two and a half weeks due to construction. We hope they learned how to correctly spell “lair” and are using the possessive in the meantime.
Can’t wait to take a peek inside the new fitness and aquatics center? We took a tour yesterday, so we’ve got you covered!
The building has three components: the Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center, the Nelson Fitness Center, and the David J. Zucconi ’55 Varsity Strength and Conditioning Center. See today’s Herald for more information.

Remember that time you saw that hamster working out in Toms and a vintage The Clash t-shirt at the OMAC? Maybe it’s a little more mainstream now, but Bon Iver frontman/hamster god Justin Vernon might be giving these kids a reason to spend a little less time discussing the newest Tumblr and a little more time werkin’ it.
Vernon teamed up with his personal trainer and biffle Jeff Rogers to create a straight-to-DVD workout video that follows Bon Iver as they run up and down stairs, lift weights, and do sit-ups, all while still looking appropriately apathetic. Don’t be fooled — an indie folk star doesn’t do squats to J-Lo. The trailer is set to the soothing melodies of We Are The Willows. Maybe this will motivate you to take a study break at the Bear’s Lair?
