Staying healthy

Caretaking the body as well as the mind is important to us at Watkins. After all, the artistic life is built on stamina. To that end, all students at Watkins receive a waiver for the enrollment fee from all area branches of the Middle Tennessee YMCA. Students need to present a valid Watkins student ID card to receive this benefit. The monthly membership rate for the center-only membership or citywide membership is assessed based on income. The Northwest YMCA is conveniently located within five minutes of Watkins at 3700 Ashland City Highway. Students are encouraged to use this neighboring facility. For additional information, visit or contact the director of student life.
