Dolores Dore Eccles Health, Wellness, and Athletic Center

Dolores Dore Eccles Health, Wellness, and Athletic Center

The three-story, 84,500-square-foot facility houses a swimming pool, full complement of fitness equipment, weight room, exercise studio, and technically challenging, 46-foot climbing wall. Above a field house that holds 1,200 spectators is a suspended running track with a high-tech surface and corner windows with views. The field house includes locker rooms, team meeting rooms, and ample equipment storage space for our popular Griffin teams' intramural and intercollegiate sports, including men's and women's basketball and our history-making women's volleyball team who won the Frontier Conference Championship and finished 5th in NAIA Region 1.

The third floor of the facility contains the Center for Nursing Education, the new home to the School of Nursing and Health Sciences. In addition to standard nursing school facilities, the center contains two technology-rich labs and a human simulator lab with life-like Laerdal SimBaby and SimMan, known as "high-fidelity, universal patient simulators." The simulators help students learn under real-world conditions, but within a learning environment.
