LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- U of L passes the halfway point on its student recreation center, and we got an exclusive look behind the scenes at the construction.
The new building is state of the art, more than doubling the size of what students use now.
The University's sports clubs are growing every year, and this building will give them a place to practice and compete.
But for students, the new facility which is expected to be more than just a place to workout, with a gaming room and cafe.
"This is a combination fitness center also has a student center component to it," said Dale Ramsay, U of L's director of intramural sports.
He says the students were an intricate part of the open-concept design.
"It's been a dream for a long time because its something that the campus has need and the fact that this was the students idea to go ahead and make this come true is very rewarding and fulfilling," said Ramsay.
This is a project led by the students, for the students. They're even funding part of it, paying 98-dollars per semester. The new rec center costs $37.5 million.
"I think its such a great need that students are willing and supportive of having a building like this even if they have to pay for it," said student body president, Justin Brandt.
