The John and Murrel Lange Center was built to fulfill the need for a health and fitness center for the joint activities of students and faculty. On a sloping site near the campus entrance and parking area, a 47,000- square-foot brick and concrete masonry two-story structure was built to fit in with the fall of the land. A large gymnasium with adjacent athletic activities was provided at ground level with a second level above for offices and a cafeteria.
