We did it! Thanks to the generous support of so many Woods friends, groundbreaking for the Sports and Recreation Center is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Tuesday, December 3, 2013!
For more than a decade, the SMWC has been working toward building a facility to replace the condemned “old gym.” By fall of 2014, SMWC is planning to enjoy a holistic college experience that includes health and wellness with a beautiful, new 45,000 square-foot Sports and Recreation Center. The Center will house two gymnasiums, a fitness room and a training room, as well as outdoor spaces for reflection.
While the College has secured funding to move forward with construction, the Campaign will continue for approximately another year. We are in the “home stretch” with a goal to raise $1.3 million dollars to complete the project. We continue to welcome additional donations for the final phase of the Campaign. Naming opportunities are still available for those interested in commemorating a loved one or leaving a legacy of their own.
This is one of the most important and transformational projects for SMWC in the last 50 years. At its completion, the Center will serve students, faculty, staff, alums, Sisters of Providence and the Wabash Valley community. The Center will immediately impact enrollment and retention, while also providing a home for athletics and a gathering place for all of our students.
We invite you to celebrate groundbreaking with us. Please RSVP to Andee Swick at 812-535-5270 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
