No longer the Greenberg Ice Pavilion, construction of the new home for Penn State's Morgan Academic Support Center for Student-Athletes is well underway and on schedule for a late-spring completion.

The project, which will cost an estimated $7.2 million, is converting the former ice hockey facility into the new Morgan Academic Center.The more than 30,000-square-foot home of academic services and support will consolidate Morgan Academic Center's services and staff into one physical location for 800 Penn State student-athletes for the first time.

Among the numerous new features being constructed in the new Morgan Academic Center are: Staff offices for the student-athlete development and welfare unit, academic counselors, learning specialists and a sports psychologist; 15 collaborative learning rooms; small conference room; large conference room; classroom space; three large study rooms; two open reading rooms; traditional computer lab; student lounge; fueling station and displays of student-athlete academic recognition through the years.

The targeted construction completion of the new Morgan Academic Center is in late May, with a turnover targeted for mid-June. The academic center will be in full service for the student-athletes' return to campus for the fall semester in August.
