The indoor physical education and athletic facility named George E. Nold Hall was built in 1972 and the interior renovation was complete in January of 2014.
It encompasses 94,000 square feet with a seating capacity in the Walter A. Lynch Sports Center of over 4,000.
In January of 2017, the Rams gymnasium was renovated featuring wood flooring for the main basketball and volleyball court, surrounded by synthetic flooring with a 10- lap-to-the-mile track. The synthetic surface also hosts two practice basketball and volleyball courts. The gymnasium serves as the home for men's and women's basketball, women's volleyball and the men's and women's track teams. Also included in the renovation were three Daktronics LED scoreboards, a 19-foot Daktronics scorers table and Nickerson Corporation bleachers with seating for 3,000 plus (including endline movable bleachers to complete a wrap-around arena-type effect for games).
The complex also has four indoor racquetball courts.
The complex has a newly renovated large weight-training complex available to students and faculty for $50 per semester or $100 per calendar year.
Available to our student-athletes is one of the most up-to-date training room facilities in the country, providing the best treatment to our student-athletes when it is needed.
