Why were the incoming Freshman the only ones polled for the survey?
Because the facility would not open until fall 2014, the 2010-11 Freshman class would be the first generation to use the BRIC and be affected by the increased student fee. The exit poll conducted in 2008 also indicated that continuing students had discomfort about voting for a fee increase that would affect future students and disinterest in a facility that would open after their graduation from Cal Poly Pomona.

What's in it for me, especially if I am a commuter student?
The BRIC will provide students with multiple chances for engagement, including over 200 employment and internship opportunities. It will provide a social hub on campus that is convenient and full of multi-activity programs.
Students would have access to amenities such as: basketball and multi-activity courts, racquetball courts, lounge areas, outdoor lap and leisure pool with deck area, rock climbing wall, indoor jogging track, fitness rooms, food services and much more.
If students are not interested in working out at the fitness center, there are plenty of spaces to study and socialize with friends, or just relax in lounge areas. The BRIC is expected to be open into the late hours including weekends.

Why does the BRIC take so long to build?
The required approvals from the University, CSU and regulatory agencies take some time. Design and construction will take about four years because of the size of the building, the unique type of facility it is, and the challenges in building on an active University campus.

What will happen to the Bronco Fitness Center that is located in the Bronco Student Center?
The Bronco Fitness Center, which is currently housed in the Bronco Student Center, will relocate to the BRIC. This would create up to 11,000 sq. ft. of reservable space in the Bronco Student Center for meetings and events for student and campus groups.
