The Ellsworth Center now has an exercise area for destressing between classes! Help yourself to exercise mats, a stability ball, treadmill, and a few other items. We require that you fill out the waiver before using any of the equipment. Enjoy!

“The UMA Ellsworth Center was one of the entities that saved my life. After my wife died, I wanted to make her proud, but I didn’t know where to start. A good friend brought me over and my new life began. Without this Center, I wouldn’t be in school. I owe everything to this Center and the wonderful people within it.” —Mathew Alley
