That same week, the Z Center opened its doors.

On October 15-16, the Z Center is celebrating two decades of great moments with a weekend of events at the Z Center. Join them for athletic events on campus, a community continental breakfast, and the 2022 Indoor Triathlon! For more information on registering click here.
