SCC looking to add new student gym

West Burlington, IA-  Southeastern Community College could soon be adding a new gymnasium on the West Burlington campus.

The Hawk Eye reports that SCC president Dr. Michael Ash presented a new “Student Center” project proposal to the Board of Trustees during a meeting on Monday.

The proposed center would be a multi-level facility located next to Loren Walker Arena.  The first floor would feature a court and running track, and the second floor would feature an exercise area.

The Quad Cities-based firm Shive-Hattery Architecture and Engineering won the bid to design the facility.

The board is expected to meet in August to order the construction of the center.
