In the NewsBHWC Grand Opening Set for September 17, 2022
The Grand Opening of Muskingum University’s new Henry D. Bullock Health and Wellness Complex will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 17, 2022. The Grand Opening event is part of the University’s 100th Homecoming celebration on September 16-18, 2022. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The $38 million, 119,000-square-foot facility has been made possible by generous gifts from alumni, friends, and community partners. The complex is named for Henry D. Bullock ’77, in recognition of his lifelong service and generosity to the University.
The BHWC will serve Muskingum students, faculty, and staff with athletics, recreation, academics, and wellness programming. Community partnerships and events will also make an impact on the southeastern Ohio region.
The complex includes new stadium seating, a new 70,000-square-foot field house, and a wellness corridor dedicated to learning.
The wellness corridor provides academic spaces supporting hands-on clinical experiences for the University’s STEM and health science students. Through community partnerships, health care providers and sports medicine professionals will utilize the wellness corridor for services contributing to the health and well-being of regional residents as well as campus community members.
Stadium-goers will enjoy 2,000 new bleacher seats, a hospitality concourse with indoor and outdoor concession stands, a video scoreboard, handicap accessible seating, barrier-free entries, and expanded parking. The stadium will host Muskingum sports as well as area high-school events such as football games, lacrosse matches, track meets, and band shows.
The fieldhouse includes an indoor 200-meter, six-lane track and a 60-yard turf field, which will be used by multiple University athletic teams and for student intramural and recreational activities. The indoor track area features dedicated spaces for events such as shot put, pole vault, and high jump, enabling it to host collegiate and high school indoor meets.
The BHWC was recently featured in the Zanesville Times Recorder and the Columbus Dispatch.
