Bethany Activity and Wellness Center rendering

Bethany Activity Center

Scheduled for completion in Spring 2023 and dedication in Summer 2023, the new Bethany Activity Center will provide spaces for a variety of uses for the entire student body. The facility will house a six-lane track, jumping spaces, artificial turf infield, and drop down netting to divide the space for multiple user groups and purposes at the same time. These amenities will alleviate pressure on the existing Sports and Fitness Center and will provide much needed spaces for use by classes, students, and athletes alike.

Facility Information

  • 84,000 square feet total
  • 68,000 square foot indoor space with track, turf infield, jumping spaces
  • 16,000 square foot fitness rooms, locker facilities, and gathering spaces.
