Smoothie King is now open in the Vanderbilt Student Recreation Center

The access point to the recreation center has moved a few yards west, closer to the outdoor running track. This will be our new entrance throughout the construction project.

The construction site is now completely fenced in. The sidewalk on the east side of the recreation center is closed. Access the center from the sidewalks along 25th Ave or Natchez Trace.

Grading for the field house has started and foundation work will soon follow.
