This is another example of the great things happening at Edinboro University, President Brown said. Were delighted this facility will benefit not just our many athletes, but also many students as well. The dome, which will contain a regulation running track and various sports courts, will stand about six stories tall. It will be used for myriad campus activities, including athletics, commencement exercises, various displays and concerts, and will become the tri-state regions largest facility of its kind.
