FWC: MEMBERSHIP

MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION FOR 2017-2018:

Eligibility/Use: You must have Columbia University ID (students, faculty, staff) in order to be a member of the Free Weight Club. Staff members with dual appointment (both Columbia and NYP or NYPI ID) are fine, but only NYP, only NYPI, or general members of the community are ineligible. Just your UNI is not enough to sign up, we require your physical ID Card.

Please remember that use of the Free Weight Club facility is AT YOUR OWN RISK as stated by the current and future waivers, and non-members and minors are NOT permitted to use the facility under any circumstances. Members found assisting or facilitating non-member access or use of the club will be indefinitely suspended from the club and subject to termination of membership subject to the club officers’ discretion. Please do not bring guests into the space to use the equipment if they are not registered and paid members.

Members are required to post their Columbia University ID in the cardholder upon entering the club. Those without current stickers affixed to their cards will be asked to leave.

Prices: Membership is from the date of purchase until the end of August 2018. All memberships end at the end of August 2018:

September 2017* — December 31, 2017: Students $100; Staff $180
*Discount: Returning members who sign up by September 15, 2017 will receive a discounted price of $80 for students and $160 for staff. To be eligible, you must submit payment and signed waiver before that date.

There will be two, large-scale sign up days this year:
Monday, August 28 from 5:30pm-6:30pm, during the P&S Club Fair in VEC 404/405
Friday, September 15 from 1:00pm-3:00pm, Bard Hall Ballroom

Payment/Waivers: We will be accepting payment in the form of cash, debit/credit (on Eventbrite), or checks (made payable to "Columbia University".) Please try to print and sign a waiver beforehand. Additionally, we will be accepting scanned copies of waivers at freeweightclub@columbia.edu, but it must be physically signed before scanning and emailing. Due to liability issues, electronic signatures will not be accepted.

2017-2018 Waiver: PLEASE FILL OUT BOTH FRONT AND BACK OF THE WAIVER. We would also like to stress the importance of reading the waiver (front and back), as this is a contract to abide by the rules of the club; if these rules are violated, there are ramifications, and not reading the waiver is not an excuse.

Stickers/IDs: Stickers will be available at both signup sessions and with the FWC officers individually. Members will have until Friday, 9/15 to get a sticker for the 2017-18 year. After that date, you must have a sticker on your ID to enter the gym, and your ID MUST BE PLACED ON THE BOARD UPON ENTERING. If either of these conditions are not satisfied, you will unfortunately be asked to leave the gym.

Please email freeweightclub@columbia.edu with any questions.
