The UC Down Under will close during the 2014-15 academic.

On its last strike: After 60 years, UC Down Under prepares to close its doors for good

The UC Down Under is on its last strike.

During the 2014-2015 academic year, the recreation center will close its doors for good.

For Margy Wirtz-Henry, director of the Physical Education Activity Program, the end of Down Under will be a loss for students and academic departments alike.

"Our billiards and bowling classes in Down Under are popular and fill up every time they are offered," Wirtz-Henry said. "With this change, we may have to drop billiards, and for bowling we may have to look at off-campus options and may look at local businesses having us during the day.
