Newark-based school makes major investment in athlete/student wellness.
IT WAS A DAY of celebration last Friday when the New Jersey Institute of Technology---a member of the D1 Atlantic Sun Conference---opened its new Wellness and Events Center.
The design of the three-story, 220,000-square-foot building features some flexible spaces that can be quickly configured to support the numerous and varied missions of the university community. Designed and engineered by AECOM, the exterior design reinforces the university's position as a leader in engineering and technology education, featuring a 52-foot-high glass wall on the north facade that offers an excellent view of the adjacent athletic field as well as NJIT's academic campus.
Lenny Kaplan has been the NJIT's AD ever since the school made the leap from D3 to D1 over a decade ago.
