Better locker room and training facilities help Manchester recruit
excellent students who want to compete in intercollegiate athletics.
Exercise and Sport Sciences, one of Manchester's largest
academic programs, has enough space for current use and growth.
More classroom space adds scheduling flexibility and helps keep
class sizes small. Stronger academic facilities enhance learning
and better prepare our graduates for successful careers.
The new Master of Athletic Training program now has the
classroom space it needs to grow.
With more room, ESS students have more space to work on
laboratory projects such as virtual patients, problem-solving scenarios and group research projects.
Manchester student-athletes can stay healthier. Original locker room space was crowded, and not air-conditioned or adequately ventilated. The new spaces have reduced the risk of illness and infection for the entire campus community.
Better locker room facilities improve communication between teams and their coaches and, for Spartan teams, the results will be evident in competition.
Whether Manchester University students play intercollegiate sports, intramurals or just work out for fun, their physical fitness is vital to their long-term health and well-being. For student-athletes, participation in sports enhances the texture and depth of their education. It builds character and sustains them in life. And it creates memories they can treasure for a lifetime. For all Manchester students, quality athletic facilities strengthen sports programs and enrich the University experience.
