Harold Newman Arena Construction on track

Harold Newman Arena is on schedule for opening in August of 2017.

Construction of the $15 million athletic complex began in May. The building will be 61,000 square feet and include a 2,000-seat arena, eight locker rooms, a booster room overlooking the court, training facility, two lounges, laundry room, two concession areas, ticket booth and retail store.

The belltower is a major feature of the facility. It will be rung after every Jimmie win and house the Jimmie Athletic Hall of Fame. The Jim and MoDean McCullough Foyer is also a featured space in the arena that will be available for community events.

“I’m very excited about how the fundraising and project are going,” Peterson said. “Wonderful people have been very generous.”

“When I go over there, it gives me goosebumps to think how wonderful it will be and the impact it will have on our campus,” Peterson said. “It’ll be a beautiful building I think the community will enjoy.”
