The Freeman Athletic Center

Built in 1990, the $22-million Freeman Athletic Center was originally composed of the 60,000-square-foot Bacon Fieldhouse, the Wesleyan Natatorium, the Wesleyan Arena and numerous support areas such as locker and team rooms, equipment rooms, athletic injury care room, fitness center and multi-purpose room. It also is surrounded by a number of outdoor playing facilities, including the Andersen Track.  In January, 2005, a $13-million addition to the Center was completed, adding a 1,200-seat gymnasium for basketball and volleyball, a 7,500-square-foot fitness center with over 100 pieces of equipment and the Rosenbaum Squash Center to the structure.  Additional support spaces also were part of the new construction.  In November, 2004, the Wesleyan Arena was renamed the Spurrier-Snyder Rink.
