Waubonsee Community College will hold a ceremonial groundbreaking for its new Field House at 2 p.m. Friday in Erickson Hall on the north side of the Sugar Grove Campus, Route 47 at Waubonsee Drive. 

The event is free and open to the public.  

Attendees will learn more about the building, meet Waubonsee athletes and coaches, and enjoy light refreshments. To RSVP for the event, email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . 

The 59,000-square-foot Field House will support Waubonsee’s athletics program, credit and noncredit physical education and wellness instruction, and general recreation for students and the community. Of its three indoor courts, two will use traditional athletic flooring, while the third will feature artificial turf to accommodate soccer, baseball and softball practices. 

Second floor highlights include a three-lane suspended running track, along with a 2,500-square-foot fitness/dance studio that comes complete with its own sound system. 

The Field House will be attached to the east side of existing Erickson Hall, with a new main entrance and lobby providing access to both buildings. As part of the $19-million project, Erickson Hall will also undergo some renovation, including the addition of an athletic team workout room and an upgraded athletic training room. 

Designed by Cordogan, Clark & Associates, the Field House is expected to open in early 2015. 

This building is the last construction project undertaken as part of Waubonsee’s 2020 College Master Plan, which provides the roadmap for the college to meet the growing demand for education locally. Other 2020 projects have included four new buildings at the Sugar Grove Campus, a new campus in Plano and a new downtown Aurora Campus.
