Episode Summary

Campbell Sports Center Designed as Home for Athletics and Academics
Watch the video to learn more about the new Campbell Sports Center. The New York Times has called Columbia’s new Campbell Sports Center a building that shows both its “brains and its brawn,” which makes perfect sense for a facility meant to support the University’s athletic and academic excellence. It also makes sense that the sleek, geometric structure is named for Columbia’s trustee chair, William V. Campbell, whose career as a Columbia football player and coach, and later as a trusted mentor to leaders in the technology industry, embodies those two goals. The new, 48,000-square-foot building, located on the corner of Broadway and 218th Street, contains a study center and a theater-style multimedia athletics classroom, as well as a state-of-the-art strength and conditioning center, giving the teams a home base alongside the fields and courts of Baker Athletics Complex. “The Campbell Sports Center,” says M. Dianne Murphy, the University’s director of intercollegiate athletics and physical education, “gives coaches and student-athletes an opportunity to use the facility year-round and will transform the student athlete experience.” All the outdoor teams will be based there: football, baseball, men’s and women’s tennis and soccer, women’s lacrosse, softball and field hockey.
