Slippery Rock University 125
Throughout 2014, Slippery Rock University will celebrate their 125 birthday with a series of activities and informational facts throughout 2014. 
  A 1957 facility survey of SRSTC called for a massive building program, including the then-already approved men’s dormitory and auditorium, along with a new classroom building, women’s dormitory (perhaps two), a field house and gymnasium, student community center, an addition to the library, a new administration building, a new dining hall and kitchen, a new maintenance building and expanded parking areas…and building soon began.

ARC Pre-Paid Fees
The Aebersold Student Recreation Center (the ARC) opened in November of 1999 and is now in its fifteenth year of operation. Campus Recreation appreciates the support of Slippery Rock University students who passed the 1994 referendum and those who paid the Recreation Center fee prior to the opening of the ARC. Recreation Center fees were assessed of SURE students from 1994-99.“Pre-paid” alumni have been able to use the accumulated funds to purchase ARC memberships. Please be aware that the opportunity to utilize “Pre-paid” fees will expire on Tuesday, December 30, 2014. Again, thanks for your support and GO ROCK!
