Penn State Behrend to demolish Erie Hall and gain new recreation center

Local News

It’s out with the old and in with the new at Penn State Behrend. 

State Officials announced they plan on demolishing Erie Hall to make space for a new recreation center.  Erie Hall was built in 1952 and has been redesigned over the years.  Officials say a new rec. center is long overdue.

Dr. Ken Miller tells us, “Erie Hall has significant issues with energy savings; it’s a very expensive building to run. It has served many purposes over the years, so it’s carved up and an inefficient building”.

Construction on the new rec. hall is planned for 2020 with a nearly two-year completion date.
