SD Mines Wellness and Recreation Center
With its grand opening in September 2015, the brand-new SD Mines Wellness & Recreation Center offers students 34,000 square feet of new or remodeled space to enjoy, including a large fitness and workout area, bouldering wall, two-court gym, locker rooms, squash and racquetball courts, and many other new amenities.
Spearheaded by a grassroots student initiative, the Stephen D. Newlin Family Student Wellness & Recreation Center was made possible by $6.7 million raised through a student-led activity fee increase and a generous $2 million gift from alumnus Stephen D. Newlin, for whom the facility is named.
The new two-court Harvey Fraser Gym is named for former Mines President Harvey Fraser. Generous gifts from Mines alumni Bill Brodsky, Larry Pearson, and Doug Beck and their spouses, Judy Brodsky, Linda Pearson, and Leah Beck, combined with more than 400 contributors, completed the $1 million gymnasium naming project.
