LU showcase athletic complex tours offered April 3

Lamar University will showcase its new, state-of-the-art athletic complex with public tours from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 3. Campus visitors will have the opportunity to tour the 54,000-square-foot complex at the south end of Provost Umphrey Stadium.

Combined, the stadium and complex represent a $28 million investment that accompanied the return of football to Lamar. The athletic complex includes a weight room, team auditorium, academic center, players’ lounge, equipment room and a sports medicine facility with hydrotherapy room and underwater treadmill. University and athletic department officials will attend the event, with members of the Lamar Ambassadors conducting guided tours.

The athletic complex is on Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway on the Lamar campus in Beaumont. Tours are open to the public without charge.
