Happy 2011! Update on one the great changes here on campus. In mid-October, groundbreaking began on a $10 million student Fitness Center, another milestone in the transformation of the university campus. The 21,000-square-foot Fitness Center will adjoin the Connolly Center, with completion by September 2011.
The center is one result of the university's highly successful capital campaign that raised more than $164 million. "The Fitness Center is not only is a significant investment in student life but also is designed to achieve LEED Gold status, reflecting the university's widely recognized commitment to sustainable practices and green building design," said Executive Vice President Timothy Leary.The Fitness Center will include cardio training, weight training, group exercise studios, fitness assessment, staff offices, lockers and shower facilities, and outdoor recreation equipment. The building will enhance the immediate streetscape with a rain garden and windows that will provide an attractive perspective from the street, especially at night.

I had garduated in 1987 from Seattle University and have been visiting school year after year from Pakistan.I think it's great to see all these changes.
Now my twin sons have started at Seattle U and it's great see the school transform and moving forwar with time. Congratulations to all who share their time and resources to make this happen.
Cheers and have a great 2011.
