DSU Extends Hours for Billera Hall and McShea Fitness Centers

Kudos Bulldogs! You’ve all made it through another year of college, and for some, it’s your last year! To help you remain physically and mentally fit during finals week, the Billera Hall and McShea fitness centers will have extended hours. Billera Hall will remain open until 11:00 p.m. every night, and the fitness center in McShea will be open 24/7. We hope that you can take advantage of the extended hours in these facilities to keep relaxed, focused, and performing at your best. Your DSU family wishes you the best of luck with your finals, and may you be blessed with a safe, happy, and relaxing summer!
