CONCRETE COMMITMENT . . .
RIT’s $25 million, 155,000 square-foot Gordon Field House and Activities Center is nearing completion. With a seating capacity of more than 8,000 people, the facility will accommodate large-scale campus events such as graduation as well as indoor sports. Other features include an aquatic center with a 25-meter competition pool, a recreational pool and spa and a 17,000-square foot fitness center. On a tour of the construction site, Lucius R. “Bob” Gordon, an RIT trustee and supporter for more than 60 years and a key contributor to the field house, helped lay some of the 130,000 bricks used in the project.
