Athletics & Wellness Center
The newest facility on the Loras College campus is the state of the art Athletics & Wellness Center, located along Cox Street in the middle of campus. More commonly known as the AWC, this multi-level center covers 8,000+ square feet with a complete workout center and weight room for students, faculty/staff and members.
