NIRSA Award

The Colorado State University Student Recreation Center, a LEED Gold Certified building, is the recipient of a National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) 2012 Outstanding Sports Facilities (OSF) Award. Recipients of this award are considered a standard by which other collegiate recreational facilities should be measured and from which others can benefit. Facilities are evaluated based on the construction project's correlation to the campus master plan and mission; the relationship between facility design and staffing; innovative use of construction materials or methods; sustainable features; and technological benefits for the members, staff, or budget. Dr. Judy Muenchow, Executive Director of Campus Recreation at Colorado State University, oversaw the renovation/expansion project from design to completion and will accept this prestigious award at the NIRSA Annual National Conference and Recreational Exposition March 27-30, 2012 in Tampa, FL.
