The MAC, named in honor of Campus Recreation's first Intramural Sports Coordinator, Dr. James McFarrland, is one of four facilities under the operation of the Office of Campus Recreation. The facility provides a variety of recreational opportunities to supplement the recruitment and retention of Slippery Rock University students while enhancing their lifestyle. Campus Recreation uses the facility to conduct outdoor intramural sports and sport club games and practices as well as to supplement their auxiliary budget through facility rentals, camps and sports leagues. The MAC, which opened in the spring of 2009, consists of two softball fields, four multisport fields, an exercise pathway, (all of which are lighted), rugby field, disc golf course, parking lot and building that provides storage, rest rooms and concessions space. Construction of the facility was funded ($1.3 million) though the Office of Campus Recreation.
