Dr. Cindy Trowbridge

Zeb Strong ('88 BA)

Director of Student Activities,
Tarrant County College South Campus

Workout schedule:
Four days a week.

Do you work out more now that the MAC has opened?
No, but the experience is definitely more enjoyable.

What equipment do you use?
I lift weights and use the stairmasters, treadmills, ellipticals and rowing machines.

When working out, do you listen to music or watch TV?
Both, but mainly I listen to music.

What type?
R&B, jazz, classic rock.

Favorite features:
The entire second floor. As an alum, the MAC provides me with a tangible connection to the University. Some of my fondest memories as an undergraduate emanate from participating in recreational sports. It was there where I met many of my lifelong friends.

How does this compare to the old facility?
There's no comparison ... the MAC is just far superior.

Describe the MAC in five words or fewer.
Breathtaking, visionary, unbelievable, quality exemplified.
