New Campbell Sports Center is Incredibly Swanky

Oh yeah, that's what a modern sports center should look like

Oh yeah, that’s what a modern sports center should look like

Bwog found out from a tipster today that football coach Pete Mangurian recently updated his Facebook page with some photos of the new Campbell Sports Center.

Before we get too indignant over the opulence and extravagance, the old sports center was by all accounts a depressing shithole, and the new one can be used by all Columbia Athletics teams, not just football. The new center was designed by Steven Holl, a Columbia professor around the concept of “points on the ground, lines in space,” which sounds…cool.

Apparently locals around Baker think it’s a blight on the neighborhood landscape of “sedate Art Deco and Tudor-style apartment buildings.”  Bwog just hopes that the dramatic change in environment will cause an equally dramatic change in our Lions’ athletic abilities…

Here are the photos, with captions from Pete Mangurian’s page, plus two extras:

    @Anonymous A flat NoCo that most students will never see or take advantage of? Excellent use of funds, Columbia.

        @Chewbacca It’s kind of sad kids don’t get involved in athletics. You get decent workouts, have tons of fun at an activity you’ll make a ton of friends in, and sex is seriously 10x better when you’re in shape.

          @Anonymous Unless you’re a CC kid, then sex is just gross to have with you (so have another “diet coke” and blame your thyroid).

      @Alum Some coaches and staff will move to Campbell from Dodge. That should make some space in the gym available for other uses. Maybe the offices that used to be squash courts can be restored.

        @Anonymous Yes, bring back the squash courts.

  • Please says:

    @Please Find out whether non-athlete students and gym members will be able to use that gym as well. The Dodge weight rooms are so gross.

    @CC '15 Bill Campbell could have found a much better way to spend that money. SkyMall maybe.

      @Anonymous Pretty sure he can choose to do whatever he wants with his own money. Maybe one day you’ll also know what that feels like. For the meanwhile, STFU sophomore. The world needs to hear less from your kind.

        @lol sorry who are you?

      2. CC '15 says:

        @CC '15 Yeah, the part where I said he couldn’t choose to spend his money however he wants was really out of line.

        Oh, wait…

    @Anonymous Not bad for athletes that couldn’t beat a Jr. High School, but front like they belong in D-I. Enjoy playing Madden on your XBox in the lounge, itll be the closest to the pros (or a win) you’ll get.

      @Anonymous Please stop hating on athletics. If you knew the kind of schedule all those student-athletes have both in-season and during the off-season you would realize how hard they are all working to improve the program. Not to mention they’re taking the same classes as you on top of it all.

        @Anonymous If coming to class late in sweats and sitting in the back texting is “working to improve the program,” then sure.

        @Anonymous who gives a shit if they’re trying? nobody said they weren’t trying. but christ. my highschool football team could kick their ass.

  • Honestly says:

    @Honestly Why don’t regular students have a lounge with video games and TVs… Something like a student center? All we have are stupid ramps and a piano….

      @Anonymous Because that shit would be broken or stolen by drunken idiots within the first weekend of installation.

    @I honestly think think that Columbia has to have some sort of connections to the sofa mafia. That is the only way I can explain to myself how we manage buy to buy the ugliest motherfukkin sofas on the planet, year after year.
