UMass Builds New Recreation Center
(2007-11-05)
(wfcr) - A new 120,000 square foot recreation center is being built at UMass. The $50 million project will provide 7 times the space currently available in the aging Boyden gymnasium. The state of the art facility will be fully air conditioned with a 3-court gym, as well as a 2 story fitness and training area. UMass spokesman Ed Blaguszewski says the recreation center has been paid for by students. He says a curriculum fee was established a "number of years ago" in response to student demand for a better facility

UMass director of campus recreation Zulma Garcia says the building will also help attract prospective students.
