Students see dream come true with building completing
Student Fitness Center and McCormick Hall opened in January
After years of waiting and planning, the campus community now has a new fitness and recreation facility for students. The Student Fitness Center and McCormick Hall opened at the start of the spring semester.
Located where Dunn-Barton and Walker residence halls once stood, the $50 million facility provides 170,000 square feet of space for Campus Recreation Services and programs within the School of Kinesiology and Recreation.
For more information about the construction process, go to Facilities.IllinoisState.edu/facilities_planning/projects/details/student_fitness_kinesiology.
The new facility consists of basketball courts, an indoor track, aerobic spaces, and a climbing wall. There are also classrooms, laboratories, and office space. Students were invited to a celebration event in January, at which time President Al Bowman and Student Body President David Marquis were the first to climb the rock wall.
Go to CampusRecreation.IllinoisState.edu to see video of the student event, which included hundreds in a game of tag. Details of the facility are there as well.
