The Central College athletics program’s success level has soared since P.H. Kuyper Gymnasium was constructed more than 45 years ago. But the facilities have been outgrown.
P.H. Kuyper Gymnasium is the headquarters for Central’s athletics program. However, nearly 50 years after construction, it’s no longer able to match the quality of Central’s athletes and teams.
Work remains. While portions of P.H. Kuyper Gymnasium’s aging infrastructure have been replaced, existing locker rooms, meeting/recruiting spaces, the athletic training room and offices are untouched and in pressing need of upgrades.
This is the time for not just a renovation, but a transformation that will accentuate Central’s position as an intercollegiate athletics leader, as well as a model for whole-person development.
Football made me set standards for myself as an athlete, as well as a student—to do everything with a passion and a purpose, and to do it to my full capability. There is no doubt in my mind that playing football at Central College changed my life, and it changed it for the better. Travis Hook ’13
