Troy University’s new recreational center to open Wednesday
Troy students will not only return from winter break to class Wednesday but also to a new state-of-the-art recreation and fitness center.
The 78,000 square-foot center features a multiactivity court, basketball court, free and circuit weight training areas, aerobic exercise rooms, an outdoor swimming pool, and a multi-level walking track, according to the university.
Finished in just under two years of construction, the building was a student-led initiative. It was paid for through a student recreation fee of $100 per semester, which was implemented in 2016.
The facility is located on the corner of George Wallace Drive and University Avenue where the former basketball arena once stood.
