The energy-efficient facility provides athletic facilities and programs along with a juice bar, classrooms and a large common area.

On average, 600 people enter the center per day. On its busiest single day, 1,044 people passed through the doors—more than a fourth of the entire student body.

Student fees of $78 per semester and faculty/staff and alumni memberships help fund operations.

Director Timothy Moore oversees the center. He came from Southern Methodist University with 17 years of experience in college recreational sports administration.

    How about credit to the architect, a local boy (Kalani HS grad)!
