Sprint to the Finish for New Athletics Center

Written by 5/26/2009

Athletics and Events Center

After receiving a $4 million gift from Atlantic Philanthropies toward the long-planned athletics and events center, the College needs just $1.3 million more before it can break ground.

Atlantic Philanthropies had previously given $25 million -- which included a $7.5 million challenge grant -- toward the project.

The state-of-the-art facility will include a 130,000 square foot main building with a 7,000-seat performance space, an outdoor stadium with lighted turf field, an aquatics pavilion with an eight-lane Olympic-size swimming pool and six outdoor tennis courts.

Editor's note: After a down-to-the-wire, neck-and-neck race, we've crossed the finish line and met our $65.5 million project goal for a new athletics and events center!

We broke ground on June 16, 2009, and construction of the 130,000-square-foot field house, outdoor stadium with lighted turf field, 35,000-square-foot aquatics pavilion, and outdoor tennis facility with six tennis courts will begin soon.
