North Idaho College broke ground earlier this month on a $7.7 million, 30,000-square-foot student wellness and recreation center on its Coeur d’Alene campus, says Tom Greene, a spokesman for the college. The two-story center will include a gymnasium, an elevated running track, a weight room, a spinning area, a climbing wall, fitness classrooms, a multipurpose room, locker rooms, and administrative offices, Greene says. The center will be organized around an open main lobby, from which many of the functions within the structure will be visible. The project is located at 920 W. River, on the north part of the campus near the NIC library and the residence hall/Mike McLean, Journal of Business. More here.
