Perfect for volleyball and basketball events. Good views from all areas. Food prices were higher than some of the other colleges visited this year.

My husband & I have attended excellent graduation ceremonies and Baylor Bears & Lady Bears basketball games here. It is a beautiful facility, with handicap access for those who need it. Go early for both graduation and games as parking will be less stressful.
