Nov. 12, 2010
GREENVILLE, PA – Thiel College invites the public to an open house on Friday, Dec. 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. to celebrate the grand opening of the college’s new Rissell-Schreyer Dome at Alumni Stadium.
The Rissell-Schreyer Dome is a seasonal air-supported structure that covers the college’s multi-use athletic field from November to March each year. This facility adds six times more usable recreational space to the college’s current indoor athletic space during winter months and offers flexibility to configure the space for a variety of activities. The dome also provides the community with a new venue for walkers, indoor soccer leagues and other activities during inclement weather. The Rissell-Schreyer Dome is available for rental for a variety of events as well.
“The Rissell-Schreyer Dome has been a priority because of the profound impact it will have on Thiel’s athletic program and campus life as well as the benefits it will deliver to the local community,” said Dr. Troy D. VanAken, Thiel College president. “The grand opening of this unique facility is something the entire Thiel community is looking forward to and wants to share with our friends in Greenville and Mercer County. Please join us!”
During the grand opening celebration, there will be a variety of family-friendly activities, including golf, softball and baseball batting practice; lacrosse and soccer shots-on-goal; laser tag; inflatable games; and a rock wall, among others. Music and refreshments will be available as well, creating a festive atmosphere for the celebration.
No reservations are required to attend the grand opening celebration. For more information about the dome, including rental information, contact the College’s Athletics Media Office at 724-589-2241.
