Aspiring to make the new Student Recreation Complex experience more memorable, 100 years, worth of buildings were combined and transformed into a series of three existing buildings connected in a U-shape. New addition consists of new indoor competition pool and diving tank, indoor and outdoor recreation pools, fitness center, weight room, climbing/bouldering walls, locker rooms, activity rooms, meeting rooms, staff offices and support facilities. Interiors reflect MU’s mascot, the tiger, and carries a jungle theme throughout the complex. This cutting-edge recreation facility is the largest rec center ever built in the history of Missouri higher education and is one of the top five largest recreation facilities in the nation. Project was named “Best Rec Center: Missouri” SIOnCampus.com 9/15/2005.
