Brockport, N.Y.- The College at Brockport officially opened its Special Events Recreation Center during a ceremony Friday morning.
The $44 million multipurpose building will provide students with enhanced recreational and athletic facilities.
School leaders say its 5,500 seat House of Fields equips Brockport with a much-needed venue for major College events and gives students an opportunity to bring bigger entertainment acts to campus. And it offers needed space for Brockport's noted kinesiology, sport studies and physical education programs.
In a statement, Brockport President John R. Halstead, PhD said, "The SERC should quickly become the crown jewel of our campus. This awesome, state-of-the-art facility will provide a dramatic boost to our already vibrant campus life. It will also serve as a point of pride for the College and a showplace for western New York."
SERC also features a 200-meter indoor track, fitness center, dining and retail space and multipurpose rooms.
