Student Activities Center Dome FAQ:
Where is the Student Activities Center located?
It is located on the college campus just east of the science building parking lot. Southeast of the old tennis courts, closest to 14th Avenue.
Is the Student Activities Center an athletic complex?
It’s a community and student activities center. It has a basketball court, an upstairs walking area, and will have workout equipment. The Center allows us to offer an extensive student intramural program. It also houses our men’s and women’s college basketball games and our women’s volleyball games. It is still a work in progress and an exciting, ever-evolving feature of Dodge City Community College. It is also a FEMA approved tornado shelter.
How will the Student Activities Center be funded?
Through donations, grants, and operations. We received a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) because it is a FEMA approved safe room, tornado shelter. We are actively seeking additional donations. We do have a list of naming opportunities associated with different levels of donations.
The mill levy was not increased to fund the Student Activities Center.
Is there a full workout facility?
Yes, we plan to move our wellness center to the Activities Center. It will be available to students and community. Additional philanthropic opportunities exist for this venture.
Are there fees associated with membership?
When the Student Activities Center is fully completed, we plan to have an Student Activities Center Board made up of students, faculty, administration and members of the community. This board will govern the operation of the Student Activities Center; they will decide on membership fees, operational hours, etc.
Is the CDC (College Daycare Center) going to be located in the dome?
No, not at this time. We have talked about a second phase where we attach rooms to the Center and move the CDC, but that’s down the road.
