Event Center Construction Update

by: Troy Gorostiza

Yesterday the Alumni Board was lucky enough to have a tour of the construction of the new activity center and let me say it is thoroughly impressive. The facility will be a meeting and event center in addition to the home court / arena for basketball, volleyball and wresting. There will be state of the art training rooms, coaches offices, locker rooms, event and class rooms and many lobbies, watching platforms, full kitchens and other amenities.

The project is on track with a completion for the end of February / beginning of March 2017 with the goal of hosting playoff basketball games. In addition, there has been talk of hosting this year’s Big One event and the graduation ceremonies at the center.

Total Seating: 2,000+ with chairs on floor for events like graduation
Bleacher Seating for Games: 1,500 total with 700 for home section, 500 for Pit and student section and 300 for visitors
