Southern University announces opening of new sports complex

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Southern University has announced an opening date for its new, multimillion dollar intramural and recreational sports complex.

The Horace Wesley Moody facility, located near student housing, is equipped with a fully stocked weight room and grand gymnasium.

The university will offer Zumba, kickboxing and some classes catered to senior citizens.

University administrators said the goal is to engage community participation from Southern University staff, alumni and their families.

"I think it'll be another place besides the student union where they can fellowship with each other, network and get healthy and fit at the same time. It's a win-win situation," Vice Chancellor Brandon Dumas said.

The grand opening is set for November 16, 2013.

Admission is free for students.

Memberships will be available to the community at a cost.
