10.31.14: Aquinas College dedicates athletic building
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Aquinas College has opened a 70,000-square-foot athletic building that includes a 200-meter indoor track and turf field in Grand Rapids.
The building was dedicated Thursday. It completes the college’s $14 million athletic complex, which also includes a fitness center that opened in 2010.
Alumnus Greg Alksnis and his family donated $1.5 million to the latest project. It includes athletic space for all the college’s 25 varsity teams as well as intramural teams. It also has rooms for academic classes.
Local elementary schools will use the space in the winter.
