Squash Center Officially Opens

October 26, 2013

The squash center officially opened on Saturday, October 26th on homecoming weekend. At the opening reception, President Liebowitz said the spectacular, nine-court facility – and the new Field House under construction – are the first buildings in the history of the College to be fully funded by donors. “We started this project and said it would not go forward until we had commitments in hand — $46 million for the field house and squash center combined — so thank you to all the donors. We did that without financing, without loans, and we’re very proud of that.”

With an audience of about 150 people on hand for Squash Center reception, the president also thanked the parents of current and former squash players for coming to the event. “It’s wonderful to see this building completed,” he said enthusiastically, “and it is exciting to conceive of how it will be used in the future.”
