5:38 p.m., Aug. 26, 2013--The bigger and better Carpenter Sports Building is now open for business.
University of Delaware President Patrick Harker, Student Government
Association President Jessica Borcky and Athletic Director Eric Ziady
cut the ribbon outside the new main entrance this morning to welcome
students, faculty and staff to see the $25 million addition and
renovation. It is the biggest project in the 70-year history of the
Harker thanked everyone who contributed to the project, including
students, administrators and architects. He also thanked the Carpenter
family and the Unidel Foundation, which have supported the facility and
its programs for decades.
"This is a community that recognizes the value of a healthy University," Harker said.
"We understand the value of a space dedicated to getting us moving
and active, away from our computers and phones and video games, getting
us engaged with each other outside the classroom or the office, and to
the sense of community that these things build," he said.
Borcky, a senior majoring in public policy and minoring in political
science, said students' needs and desires were at the heart of the
"Not only was our comprehensive student fee put to good use through
this project, but also our voices were heard along the way," Borcky
"New students are very fortunate to begin their UD careers with a new
and improved recreation and athletic facility, and returning students
will be amazed with the expansion and increased resources," she said.
Construction began about a year and a half ago after a Recreation
Master Plan showed UD was falling behind its peers in terms of indoor
and outdoor recreation facilities.
"For years, students here at Delaware were very vocal about their
desire for high-caliber recreational and fitness facilities on campus,"
The new 18,000-square-foot fitness area is more than three times the
size of the old fitness area. It features more than 100 treadmills,
stationary cycles and other exercise machines, as well as an indoor
running track and a group exercise room. A rock-climbing wall and a
second outdoor turf field are planned to open later this fall, Harker
"Really, we're getting to the point where this is no longer just a building," he said. "It's a full-fledged recreation complex."
