We have a vision of a Student Activities and Events Center, the first new building on campus since 2002. The cost of the building is $8.4 million and our goal is to raise $3 million. We respectfully invite you to partner with us by giving a tax-deductible contribution to make this vision a reality, and to launch IU Kokomo into the next chapter.
The project is to construct a multi-purpose student activities and events center on the IU Kokomo campus. It will be located on the green space behind the Pavilion off Rebecca Lane in Kokomo. There will be ample parking. It is a 24,000 square foot facility, with a 10,918 two story gymnasium which can seat 1000 people for athletic events, and up to 350 people for special events and seated diners. Construction is estimated to be complete by Fall, 2020.
Description of the video:
A First Tour of the Student Activities and Events Center
A camera pans left to show the outside of the Student Activities and Events Center currently under construction. You can hear construction noises. A rousing pep-rally styled hip-hop beat is playing. The text “A First Tour of the Student Activities and Events Center” is placed on screen.
Throughout the video text is superimposed on walls that look like signage, but they are all composites and not meant to be final.
Another pan left reveals the inside of the main entrance to the building and you can see the construction workers.
The concession stand is highlighted.
A 360-degree pan of the main gym and events center room is shown.
An empty changing room is shown.
An empty shower room is shown.
A classroom full of construction material is shown.
The camera moves through the coaches hallway where all offices are located.
A final look at the main gym and events center room is shown full of construction material and the words “Coming Soon Fall 2020.”
A final view outside of the front of the building is shown with the words – 75 years, Indiana University Kokomo, 1945-2020, Honoring the IU Bicentennial, iuk.edu appearing on screen.
