Ground broken for Sebo Athletic Center

The last time BGSU constructed a building for intercollegiate athletics, William Jerome was president of the University and Lyndon Johnson was president of the United States.

That was some 40 years ago, but with the Dec. 2 groundbreaking for the University’s Sebo Athletic Center, a new facility for Falcon athletics is on the way.

Bob and Karen Sebo of Salem, Ohio, for whom the structure is named, contributed $3.5 million toward a goal of $7 million being raised to support construction of the facility.

The unique, three-story structure will become the new “front door” of Perry Stadium. With approximately 42,500 square feet, the center will provide modern sports medicine-rehabilitation and strength-training facilities; a balcony overlooking the playing field; offices for the football coaches; teaching space for coaches and players; a video editing room; team meeting rooms, and a coaches’ conference room.
