New wellness center opens at Auburn University

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

One of the top wellness centers in the country is now open for students, faculty and staff at Auburn University.

Auburn marked the opening of the 240,000 square foot facility with a ribbon cutting ceremony Monday afternoon.

The $72 million building includes the nation's longest indoor running track, a five story rock climbing wall and a 45-person tiger paw shaped hot tub.

This project began in 2009 when Auburn students voted to asses themselves an increase in activity fees to help raise funds for construction.
