Western Kentucky University is on a constant mission to offer it's student-athletes the best facilities available. With his in mind, two projects have been proposed.
Work on Phase One of the Diddle Arena Renovation Project began Monday, April 15, and plans call for the bulk of that part of the project to be completed in time for tipoff of the 2002-03 basketball season in November. Phase Two (new seating and a new floor) will begin following the conclusion of the '02-03 season.
Western Kentucky University has also received a new gift of $1.55 million for an Academic Athletic Performance Center from a donor who wishes to remain confidential. WKU Athletics Director Dr. Wood Selig said the new Academic Athletic Performance Center will be located in the heart of the athletic precinct and will accessible to all 20 intercollegiate athletic programs.
Fans will be able to keep track of the progress of both projects through photo galleries provided here by WKU's Sports Information department.
