The Hadlock Student Center spans 48,000 square feet on the east side of campus

For a portion of its March 1

meeting that includes a luncheon,

the George Fox University

Legacy League will provide

a tour of the newest

building on the university's

Newberg campus: The Hadlock

Student Center.

The 48,000-square-foot

building – located on the east

side of campus near Hess

Creek Canyon – includes a

21,000-square-foot gym with

three multi-use sport courts, a

4,200-square-foot fitness center

with a suspended indoor

running track, and 5,400

square feet of office space for

student government and activities,

student lounge, a

climbing wall, and rental center

equipment, according to the


As it outlined in a press release,

GFU built the Hadlock

Student Center as a way to relieve

pressure from the

Wheeler Sports Center, which

currently houses all 21 of its

sports teams. The building

was named after Bob and Camille

Hadlock, who graduated

from the university and were

missionaries until Bob Hadlock's

death in 1995 on a mission

trip in Nepal.

At the luncheon hosted by

the Legacy League, Director of

Campus Recreation Rob Simpson

will give a guided tour of

the building in a "show and

tell" format. Sampson joined

the GFU staff roughly a year

ago after serving as associate

professor of outdoor leadership

at Simpson University in

Redding, California.

The meeting – held in Canyon

Commons – starts at noon

March 1 and is open to the

public with a reservation. The

cost per attendee is $10 and

reservations must be made by

Feb. 26. For more information

on the luncheon or to make a

reservation, call Judy Woolsey
