The M. Gordon Clarke Field House / University Student Union was the first building on campus. The building houses the University Student Union Advisory Board (USUAB) and Athletics. In addition to this student space there is also a 5,000 square foot gymnasium, a 4100 square foot fitness gym, 4 meeting rooms and offices. Associated Students Inc. also shares space in the building promoting intramural and recreational sports.
In 2014, The University Student Union (USU) opened and the USUAB moved out of The Clarke and into the USU. In 2014, funding was obtained to add a new 1,400 seat gymnasium adjacent to The Clarke for basketball, volleyball and recreational events (Field House Expansion). As a result, The Clarke will undergo some programmatic changes. Stay tuned.
