Q: I'm not currently a student, but I'm currently an (insert: alumni, faculty, staff, person of any kind with a Dodge Fitness Center membership), can I still join the club?
A: Yes! As long as you have a Dodge Fitness Center membership you are good to go! In fact, we pride ourselves in having a wide range of "demographics" represented (by that we mean current students, alumni, faculty, etc.). This generally makes for a healthy mixture of experience levels throughout the club, and takes the club from being "just" a triathlon club to a platform for all members of the Columbia community to interact.
