UT’s Fitness Center Named Finalist in Annual Urban Excellence Awards
The University of Tampa’s Riseman Fitness and Recreation Center has been selected as a top finalist for the Tampa Downtown Partnership (TDP) 2023 Annual Urban Excellence Awards in the Private Sector Project category.
The TDP’s annual Urban Excellence Awards program was created to celebrate individuals, businesses, organizations, events and projects that have created a positive and lasting impact in Tampa’s downtown.
The Riseman Center is also included in this year’s People’s Choice Award Category, which is voted on by the public. Voting is open through Feb. 3.
The Riseman Fitness and Recreation Center, named after UT alumnus and longtime supporter Benson Riseman '78, serves as a one-stop shop for all campus fitness programs, personal training and evaluation, wellness and nutrition programs, intramurals, recreation activities, club sports and some exercise-related laboratory and research activities. The 130,000-square-foot center opened in September 2016, and an expansion was completed in early 2022.
