100 SOUTH STATE AVENUE - DICKINSON, ND 58601
WSC Sports & Wellness Facility
The Williston State College Sports & Wellness Facility consists of 49,200 square foot Health Science & Sports Complex with a 19,500 square foot balcony level. The focal point of this addition was a stadium with a seating capacity of 2,000 spectators. Also on the main floor is accessible locker rooms, three large health & wellness classroom labs, a concessions area and other public amenities. The upper deck around the stadium has a walking track surrounded by offices and classroom/lab suites. This facility houses the Practical Nursing, Physical Therapy Assistance, and Massage Therapy Programs, the intercollegiate athletic programs, and the health and physical education needs of Williston State College. The new addition attracts new students with expanded education and recreation opportunities, creating a level of competition with larger colleges.
About 75% of the funds for the WSC addition are being generated locally, and securing community support has been essential to the project's success. Our firm provided 3-D renderings, promotional plans, postcards, and other displays to attract donor attention.
The additional practice courts has expanded Williston's ability to attract regional tournaments and workshops for basketball and volleyball. The batting cages enlarge the warm-up areas available to the adjacent playing fields.
The Williston State College project was envisioned to enhance the city's opportunity to draw non-residents for events as well as provide health and wellness activities for students.
