YMCA memberships available to all fee-paying students

All Greater Wichita YMCA locations — including the the Steve Clark YMCA and Student Wellness Center at WSU — have partnered with Wichita State to offer new benefits to fee-paying Wichita State students. Students receive a single adult membership to all 10 YMCA locations included as part of their student activity fee. The Y membership is effective as long as students are enrolled and paying student fees at WSU. To get started, all students need to do is bring their Shocker ID to any Wichita-area YMCA front desk.
