Steven A. Adler Athletic Complex
Steven A. Adler served in various capacities at Penn State Altoona across 26 years, most notably as dean of student affairs. He earned a degree in electrical engineering from Penn State in 1931. During his time at the campus, which began at the old Webster School building, Adler saw the student body grow from 100 to 1000 students. Adler was a key member of the administrative vision that saw the campus achieve remarkable growth during the 1950s and 1960s.
The Steven A. Adler Athletic Complex contains a large gymnasium, an NCAA competitive indoor swimming pool, racquetball courts, a multi-purpose room, weight rooms, fitness loft, locker rooms, and faculty offices. In addition, the building houses offices for Intramurals and Recreational Sports, varsity coaches, the Office of Intercollegiate Athletics, Army ROTC, and kinesiology. The outdoor athletic facilities include tennis courts, outdoor basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, a baseball field, and an all-purpose athletic field, a pond for winter ice skating (weather permitting), Spring Run Stadium, home to an eight-lane, all-weather track, a soccer field, and a 2,000 seat grandstand.
