We will replace the outdated field house with a new facility that contains sports courts, jogging track, weight rooms, locker rooms; and rooms for yoga, spinning, and other fitness classes. The center will be a home for all club and intramural sports, as well as recreation, fitness, and wellness programming for students, faculty, and staff.
