Bowling Green Approves $13.4 Million Rec Center Renovation

Upgraded equipment, new flooring and repairs are part of the $13.4 million plan to renovate Bowling Green State&#39;s 34-year-old Student Recreation Center.

The Student Recreation Center at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) in Ohio is getting an upgrade thanks to a $13.4 million renovation project approved by trustees.

The renovation will include improvements to the cardio and training areas, new flooring, and modifications to the track. Repairs will be made to the roof, plumbing and electrical systems, and the facility's entryway and parking lot will be expanded.

Sheri Stoll, BGSU's chief financial officer, told the Sentinel-Tribune that although the recreation center was state-of-the-art when it was built in 1979, it has never been renovated and needs to be modernized to attract students.

"Rather than serving as a positive recruiting tool, the Rec Center represents a dated and undesirable liability to Bowling Green State University," Stoll wrote in letter to the university's board of trustees last year.

The renovation was proposed in June and approved in late February. Stoll told the Sentinel-Tribune that efforts will be made to keep the facility open during the renovation, which is scheduled to begin in August.
