Student Recreation Center
Construction of a new 77,000 square foot student recreation center was recently completed in March of this year (2008). The new facility is located at the Northern end of the campus between Blanton Hall and the Berra Museum.
The Center features a six-lane swimming pool, locker rooms, a two-court gymnasium with elevated running track, two racquetball courts, strength and cardio training areas, administrative offices and a café.
Modern state of the art exercise equipment has been installed in the exercise areas which are located on the first and second floor. The second floor treadmills provide the user with a breathtaking view of the New York City skyline.
Two multi-purpose rooms will host various activities such as yoga, kick boxing, dance, aerobics, etc.
The two main buildings were constructed with reinforced concrete and structural steel, and designed in the campus' Spanish-mission style architecture. The buildings will be connected via a glazed curtain wall entry space with terrazzo floors and a monumental staircase.
