LU Athletic Complex will host public tours Sunday

Lamar University will unveil its new state-of-the-art athletic complex to the public on Sunday (April 3, 2011) from 2 to 5 p.m. Lamar Cardinal fans 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 welcome the public at the event, with members of the Lamar Ambassadors conducting guided tours to the public free of charge. Free parking will be available just south of Provost Umphrey Stadium.
