We were excited to turn over the keys of the Lambright Sports and Wellness Center to Louisiana Tech and see them open the doors to their students. All of the speculation and theorizing that goes into a project of this scope is put to the test when we step away and the staff and students begin to make it their own. So far, the variety of recreation choices has already made Lambright a popular campus destination as the Center is becoming a place to see and be seen.
One of our primary collaborators, Dr. Jim King, Tech’s Vice President for Student Affairs offers his assessment, “This complex sort of screams at you to come have fun, feel better, and improve yourself overall at the same time.” King continues, “Our focus is beyond intramural play and recreation. It’s about health and well-being. We all perform better when we eat properly, exercise regularly and take care of ourselves, which translates into increased student retention and recruitment.”
A grand opening and dedication will follow in the fall academic quarter.
