Ornelas HPE/Rec Center

Joseph Z. & Louise H. Ornelas Health & Physical Education Center

The Ornelas Health & Physical Education Center, located at TJC's main campus, opened in 1986 and serves the public, academia and general student body needs in fitness and recreation. Additionally, it serves Continuing Studies, Intramurals, and Special Events. Fun and fitness are strongly encouraged. The Ornelas HPE Center schedule varies with the semesters. We encourage fitness that is a combination of physical, mental, intellectual, emotional and spiritual well being in a healthy, safe, and positive environment.
