Janice Biancavilla / Arizona Daily Wildcat A worker continues preparations Friday for the Recreation center swimming pool to reopen today for student use. The newly resurfaced pool now has a large UA logo on the bottom.

After undergoing renovations, the Student Recreation Center’s pool will reopen today.

The pool was closed in the beginning of November and drained for the first time in 10 years. The primary goal was to drain the pool so it could be inspected, but the pool was also resurfaced.

While the pool was already under construction, workers took the opportunity to add something new.

“”We actually placed the ‘A’ logo down at the bottom of the pool so it’s got a really cool look to it,”” said Chad Jeffry, marketing specialist at Campus Recreation.

Jeffry said he felt the look enhances the connection of the pool with the rest of the UA.

“”It definitely helps with the overall brand,”” he said, “”… by having that ‘A’ down there and having the recognizable logo of the university, it helps to instill a little pride with the students.””

While the pool is open again, the revamping process isn’t completely over yet.

Campus Recreation will be adding things like new deck furniture, umbrellas and plants around the pool during March and April.
