Fuhrer Field House Renovation
Construction Timeline: March 2013 - May 2014
Fred Beile Competition Arena will be dedicated upon completion.
1. Fred Beile competition arena
Coach Beile's name will greet players and guests as they enter the arena, and be a constant reminder of his lasting impact on students and Doane.
2. Classroom or Lounge
The space can easily be adapted from a classroom to a pre-game lounge space.
Say goodbye to the small, rolling concession desk and hello to a new dedicated space for Fuhrer guests.

27 feet of built-in cases will display Tiger pride.

By popular demand, the weight room stays for student training.
