Completed in September of 2005, this $8.4 million renovation includes a new wood gym floor housing three basketball/volleyball courts, a new three-lane walking/jogging track and "TechRec" cardio area, a new weight room, a central check in point and equipment checkout desk, remodeled locker rooms and a student lounge. The signature purple "M" on the east end of Otto serves as an air return for the ventilation system in the facility. Otto's "TechRec" Cardio Area has recently received nationwide acclaim. Articles about MSU's new revolutionary cardio equipment has been published in Sunday newspapers across the country and on 125 media websites.
