Foster Field House Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Colorado Mesa University is excited to announce the completion of its newest building on campus. The facility will serve as a multidisciplinary space that will provide more recreational opportunities for the community, expand the university’s capacity to host regional athletic events and will house additional academic classrooms for kinesiology majors.

The building will be named after President Emeritus Tim Foster, his wife Lisa and the entire Foster family following his tenure as CMU president which spanned 17 years. As president, Foster oversaw dramatic changes to campus academic offerings as well as its physical footprint. He took the helm at Colorado Mesa University in March 2004 and his tenure marked a period of dramatic evolution for the institution.

On Friday, May 5 at 4pm CMU will honor his legacy with the opening of the Foster Field House.

Members of the Board of Trustees and CMU President John Marshall will be joined by the Foster family, community leaders, longtime CMU supporters as well as faculty, staff and students for the ribbon cutting ceremony. The new facility is located north of Escalante Hall and south of the Maverick Center.
