Community leaders and donors joined with university employees, faculty, students and supporters on July 7 for the ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony for the O’Brien Athletic Training Center. The 18,600-square-foot athletic facility includes a wellness and weight training room, new coaches’ offices, new locker rooms for outdoor sports, a training room and a practice area with portable batting cages.
MACU Athletic Director Marcus Moeller said he is excited for how the O’Brien Athletic Training Center will enhance the student-athlete experience at the university. “At the core of who we are, our athletic department serves to put Christ at the center of our programs, provide a vehicle for an incredible education and achieve an unparalleled level of competitive excellence,” Moeller said. “Each piece of this facility was carefully crafted to allow us to do these things at a deeper and greater level.”
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the O’Brien Athletic Training Center was able to open debt-free. There are still opportunities available for naming locker rooms and other amenities in the facility. For more information, visit give.macu.edu or text MACUAthletics to 41444
