Some of Michigan State’s recreational sports facilities we built in the early 1900’s, and are still in use today. While millions of dollars are being spent on additions to campus, Rec Sports Director Rick McNeil, says the MSU administration has not made these work out facilities a priority in upgrades.
McNeil has recently sent in proposals of what existing space could be renovated. One of these proposals involves an emptied pool in IM Circle that has been closed down since the 80’s. Instead, McNeil thinks they should build a new, three-story work out facility in its place.
His proposals will be reviewed by President Simon and the administration over the summer. McNeil hopes they will have decided on some upgrades by Fall 2016.
