ATLANTA - In the latest rankings by the Princeton Review, Georgia Tech is first in the nation in Athletic Facilities. The complete list of all categories is available in their new book, "The Best 376 Colleges: 2012 Edition," out now. Click HERE to see the top five for several categories.
In the last couple years, there have been several new facilities constructed or renovated around campus. This past year, construction began on two major projects -- the John and Mary Brock Football Practice facility and McCamish Pavillion. The football indoor practice facility was just recently completed and will be used when the football team begins practice this week. McCamish Pavillion, the future home of Georgia Tech men's and women's basketball, will open its doors in time for the start of the 2012-13 season. Shirley Clements Mewborn Field, home of Tech Softball, was unveiled prior to the start of the 2009 season. In addition, the Zelnak Center, a practice facility for Georgia Tech basketball, has been open for two years now. Other facility upgrades in the last few years include the transformation of Tech's former football locker room on the ground floor of the Edge Athletic Center into a new Technology Center, which benefits academic support services for all Yellow Jacket student-athletes, and cosmetic and functional improvements to Bobby Dodd Stadium.
