CHAMPAIGN -- Some people on campus are skipping right past fall and skating into winter. Public skate opened this month. Sunday, dozens took a chance on the ice.

The rink was filled with people of all experience levels. And even though it may seem strange to skate in the summer, for the past couple of hot weekends people have put it to good use. 

“It’s a great way to cool down, come after a game, after a jog whatever,” said Mitch Dickey, Ice Arena facility assistant.

People can skate during lunchtime Monday - Friday at 11:15 am. Sundays, open skate is at 1:30 pm.
