Arena Updates

The Inasmuch Foundation, which has been a generous supporter of many campus projects over the years, made a grant to name the Mike and Barbara Yalich Student Services Center, which will be located adjacent to Ed Robson Arena. The Yalich Center will be home to a student wellness center, health services, bookstore, and mail center, as well as an art studio, café, and pub. These services will support the entire campus community while also engaging the wider Colorado Springs community.
