Student Activity Center
You got game? Love to dance? Interested in rock climbing? You will do it all in a new student activity center coming soon to our Newberg campus. Form an intramurals team and compete with and against your friends. Decide who you’re going to ask to that big dance Saturday night. Or take advantage of space set aside for yoga and aerobics classes.
Scheduled for a fall 2018 opening, the 40,000-square-foot center will be built on the east side of campus, between the new dining hall and the Hobson-Macy-Sutton Residence Hall Complex, to house student leadership offices and host athletic, club and campus-wide activities.
The building will include three basketball/volleyball courts, a 5,400-square-foot area designated as Associated Student Community office and club space, a fitness center with views overlooking Hess Creek Canyon, a rock-climbing wall, two yoga/dance/aerobics studios, and a student lounge.
The addition will allow the university to better accommodate intramural sports and ASC activities such as dances and concerts. Ultimately, the building will give the university a more extensive space for students to interact through athletic, leadership and club activities.
