Northland Upgrades Locker Rooms Northland College completed a comprehensive remodel of three locker rooms and upgraded the public restrooms in Kendrigan Center. The $125,000 project fills a much-needed gap for students and athletes, said Interim Athletic Director Seamus Gregory.
Funded by gifts to the athletic program, the renovation was a project that was well overdue.
“The locker rooms had not been renovated since the original gym was built in 1964, and several of the varsity teams have been sharing space together and with the public,” Gregory said. “This renovation brings us in line with Division I college programs.”
Kendrigan Center now has two new locker rooms for men and one for women—all decked out with maple lockers, engraved Northland College logos, new floors, controlled door access, and a fresh coat of paint. Visiting women’s teams will continue to use the public space.
The locker rooms will be well used and well appreciated. One-third of the student body—214 students—participate in varsity sports, and many faculty, staff, and students use the facilities.
“This is a professional, grade-A experience for everyone,” Gregory said.
