O'CONNELL SPORTS CENTER REOPENS
Students returning to Clark for spring quarter classes found the newly remodeled O’Connell Sports Center open for use.
|Renovation work on O’Connell Sports Center created new faculty offices – including that of Health and Physical Education Professor Lisa Borho.|
Among the improvements and additions in the building are an elevator providing second-floor access, new classrooms and faculty offices, and a new fitness testing center and athletic training room.
“O’Connell is an accessible building now, and I’m very happy about that,” said Health and Physical Education Professor Lisa Borho. “The new classroom space helps with class scheduling, allowing us to have both health and health and physical education classes in the same building.”
|Members of the Penguin Nation looking for a workout now enter Thompson Fitness Center from inside O’Connell. Professor Lisa Borho notes, “It is wonderful to have a lobby area with tables where students can hang out and study.”|
While work continues on the men’s and women’s team rooms, the staging area fencing has reduced in size – making parking spaces in the Red 1 lot available for student and general use. Main entrances to the building are also open, providing access to the gymnasium, fitness center and faculty and Athletic Department offices from both the east and west.
