FAIRBANKS-The basketball and volleyball programs up on the hill have been landing some coveted recruits. Maybe facilities could be a reason players are signing up to be Nanooks. The UAF Patty Center is getting a makeover.
Quote "State of the art seating and bleachers on both side of the gym and balcony" unquote from UAF's story on AlaskaNanooks.com. The only caveat is that the capacity of the Patty will go down from 2,000 to 1,622.
The Hussy Seating Company in Maine is providing the seats that will have a blue and gold color pattern. There will be handrails and contour seats a whole new look and feel to the Patty Center. They should be installed sometime this summer.
This is all a part of a long term facilities plan for the University.
