Funny...the HPER bldg opened not long after I started going to school there.  It was pretty state of the art at the time - I spent way too much time there and not near enough time studying.  Times...they are achanging...

When the HPER was built it was a state of the art facility. Within a decade it was outdated. Itís a nice facility just outdated. There was also a little bit of controversy about building it and the athletic department wanting involved especially for the swimming pool.

With 3 kids in or about to attend college, I have visited a number of college campuses over the past few years.  Universities have put $$ into all kinds of amenities to attract students.  It's an arms race.  I have visited every major college in TX and OK, and even some smaller ones.  And the HPER is only better than Baylor's wellness facility.  U of Tulsa's facility is much nicer than the HPER.  Tulsa!  Some D2 schools have nicer facilities.  I attended Arkansas beginning in '84 and the HPER was a nice facility. I swear the paint on the walls is still the same today.  The exterior looks like a temporary building.  I don't know if it can be remodeled to bring it into the 21st century.  There are twice as many kids attending Arkansas now than when I attended, but the wellness facilities haven't grown with the enrollment.  A new wellness facility should be tops on the university's agenda for facility improvement!

98% of club seats sold and 100% of suites sold in the previous 5 years, I'm pretty sure they're expanding the correct part of the stadium.

Someone will have to donate enough money to get their name on one for it to be built very soon. They are more worried about beds for them, than basketball courts.

Campus population has just about doubled since the hyper was built.  They've needed it renovated and expanded for the last decade.  But the addition of a few football practice fields kind of landlocked it.

Several developments, renovations and expansions are on the list before a new HPER. Mullins Library, Agriculture Building, Plant Science Phase II, Fine Arts building, and add another parking deck before 2020.

When I was on campus, there were plans to build one after the University purchased the Fayetteville High School campus. However, the school blocked the sale and now the UofA doesn't have the land to build a new one.

I was thinking the same thing. When you go on a visit to a school they show you all the amenities. You mentioned Baylor, but left out the lazy river in the student center. When we were looking a couple years ago for or oldest, we went to Ut Austin, Baylor, Vandy, Notre Dame Tulsa and UofA. The presentation at the UofA was the worst by far. The "guides" were disinterested, the admins were rude, and you even had to pay for parking. At the other places they had special parking just for visitors, the guides were all super excited ( I think redbull may have been involved, lol ) and at 3 of the schools meals were provided. I hope when they recruit athletes to the UofA it is not with the same " you are lucky to be here " attitude they treat other prospective students with.

They read your post history and thought you were a plant for the other schools.  JK!

Don't forget they also dropped seven figures to build HYPR 2 in the Union building when they moved the bookstore out. It was nice for a hot minute, but now it's about like the original.

Pretty much my same experience.  While I can look past the sales effort and more at the school's academics and programs, most of the others schools  we visited put much more into their recruiting events than Arkansas - Baylor, TCU, aTm, Trinity, Tulsa, OKST, OU, Tulane put on a better presentations.  UT's was the worse - there was an overwhelming "we know you want to come here" attitude.  Arkansas has gone through an amazing build and campus upgrade campaign over the past 10 years, but they still have work to do.  I know that takes money, but other schools are upgrading and they have similar funding issues.

The players (ones we need to recruit) now have a brand new private practice facility. They don't have to use the HPER at all unless they just wanted to hang out with the non-athletes. I doubt it effects recruiting at all.

I attended the University in the early 90ís and the HPER wasnít that great then. The gym was a total joke.  As much as we pay for school they should have something nicer.

Location is a big problem.  To do a wellness facility correctly, it would need a large foot print.  I guess they could use the intramural fields, but then....

I guess the best place to put it would be to the west of the practice fields.  You would only have to tear down one building.  You could also buy the Islamic Center to its south.

My understanding is the Testing Building is coming down and the UA already owns all the land around the Islamic Center. Would be a great spot.
