ABC meets Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3:45-5 pm at SEM.

Jade Johnson ’17, a ABC regular, said “ABC is really good for getting in shape. If you are craving that nice beach body, I recommend doing it. It is very hard but it does not take that much time because it is only three days a week and is less than two hours.”

If you choose to not participate in a SEM sport, come out and support the teams!! And remember to go to U-Go-SEM.
