Project Amenities

The 101,000 sq. ft. facility has a glass exterior, four gymnasiums, a weight and fitness area, a wellness center, an elevated walking track, racquetball courts, an indoor pool with four lap lanes and a shallow outdoor pool, a 42-foot rock climbing wall, group exercise studios and locker rooms, as well as a lounge area where students can congregate between classes.

The project completed ahead of schedule and under budget amid extraordinarily challenging circumstances, including a devastating E-3 tornado that struck the campus during construction, severely damaging 23 buildings and affecting 50 more.
