Recreation Complex Campaign

Recreation Complex Campaign

Why a Recreation Complex & Student Center Expansion?

Midway University’s growing student body, both student-athletes and non-athletes, is in need of space for a variety of programming. A new 15,000 square foot recreation complex will connect with the existing McManis Student Center and include an auxiliary gymnasium to be used for intramural programs, extra practice space and as a special event venue for meetings and other types of campus gatherings. The complex will also include a new weight and cardio room for all students to use, a renovated and expanded athletic training room and two additional locker rooms, and offices and meeting space.

There are many opportunities for naming rights and sponsorship recognition within this campaign. Our Advancement Office Staff welcomes the opportunity to meet with you and discuss the capital campaign. Contact Ben Shaffar at 859.846.5373 or email
