If you have been on campus at the University of Southern Indiana, you may have noticed a little construction going on at the PAC. We now have a first hand look at what the new PAC will look like.

USI Athletics shared an interactive video yesterday on social media that gives you a virtual tour of what the upgraded PAC will look like. According to USI,

Highlights of phase I, which is expected to be completed fall of 2018, include construction of a new 4,300-seat basketball arena and a kinesiology and sport lab, the addition of a spirit store, improved concessions and updates to utility infrastructure.

You can see phase I coming to fruition as we speak on campus with a slideshow of photos here. Phase II will begin Spring of 2019 after the completion of phase I.

During phase II, additional seating will be added to the arena, bringing total seating capacity to more than 4,800. Additional highlights of phase II include renovation of the existing PAC facility, the addition of a competitive-level swimming pool and diving well on the north side of the Recreation Fitness and Wellness Center, collaborative group learning space with enhanced technological abilities, instructional space for high-demand academic programs, and new and renovated space for faculty and staff.

Phase II is expected to take from 18 to 21 months to complete if everything goes as planned.

Once it is all completed, USI will have a beautiful, new Physical Activities Center. See what it will look like for yourself:
