  • Celebrating 150: Rec Center Turns 20

    By May 1997, the exterior construction of the Student Recreation Center was nearly complete.

    The sesquicentennial is not the only milestone on campus this year. The fall semester marks the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Student Recreation Center.

    After breaking ground on the facility in February 1996, the rec center was officially open for business by August the following year. Although the exercise equipment is updated regularly, for the most part, the building has remained about the same over its history. There have been upgrades to the HVAC, the lighting and the roof.  

    Each fall and spring semester the rec center sponsors 20-25 free group exercise classes, and during the academic year up to 40 intramural sports are offered. When school is in session, the building regularly averages more than 600 patrons per day, with some days reaching nearly 1,500 users.

    Truman’s Rho Rho chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, was named an “Honor Chapter” for its outstanding activities in 2016-17, the 24th consecutive year Truman has earned this prestigious distinction.
