THEN: One year's work in physical culture - referred to today as physical education - was required of every student. The college gymnasium, maintained as a campus structure until 1974, also housed the only bathing facilities available to the students.
NOW: The college still has requirements for proficiency in physical education, and although physical education is not a major field of study, courses are available in coaching the major sports. Today's expanded campus facilities for athletics, recreation, and fitness - the Brock Center; Crenshaw Gymnasium; Alumni Gym; Day Field; Hugh Stephens Baseball Complex; Bowen Tennis Courts; various fields for field hockey, lacrosse, and soccer - reflect the college's life-long commitment to strengthening students' bodies as well as their minds.
