I'm partial to swimming pools, surf riding and dipping my toes in ice-cold Sierra lakes. One of my favorite spots is in West Texas, near Marfa. At Balmorhea State Park more than 15 million gallons of spring water flow through a giant pool each day, delighting swimmers, scuba divers and tiny endangered Comanche Springs Pupfish who make it their home.

Now there's another swimming pool for me to recommend. Gone is the pool from my undergraduate days in the dark Reynolds Gym. Wake Forest has a glistening new pool — eight lanes, surrounded by glass walls and three-story arched windows. It's a signature feature of the transformed gym.

During a recent open house, faculty, staff and students appeared awestruck by the beauty and modern touches of the building, which managed to maintain architectural sensitivity to the gym's history. We toured state-of-the-art spaces for fitness, recreation and social activities. Read about the transformation, and check out the photo of our Demon Deacon playing lifeguard.

All best wishes,
