Projects Abound On Florida's Campus
The University of Florida Athletic Association continues to make improvements for the facilities around campus, and three sports programs will see a boost to their facilities in the upcoming school year. Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is nearing the end of its West Concourse renovation, which will give fans a more comfortable experience, including new graphics on the walls, renovated bathrooms, and improved concession areas. The project is scheduled to be finished August 10 and will cost $5,000,000. Meanwhile, the men's and women's tennis teams will have a fully-inclosed indoor tennis facility (to compliment the 12 outdoor varsity courts) beginning in January. The courts replace the old "indoor" facility, which-without a full cover-was unable to be used for matches in inclimate weather. The new tennis courts will cost $1,400,000. The Stephen C. O'Connell Center is also getting an expansion aimed at improving the practice facility for the gymnastics team. The north end of the O-Dome will be expanded to give the gymnastics team an additional 6,600 sq. ft. of space, bringing the total area to 18,000 sq. ft. The project will be finished in December and will cost $4,000,000.
