George and Sally Haddix Recreation and Athletic Center


The George and Sally Haddix Recreation and Athletic Center opened in 2010. The performance gymnasium and fitness facility is located east of the Lied Science and Mathematics Building. It spans two-levels and 63,535 square-feet, housing a performance gymnasium for volleyball and basketball with seating for 1,100, a fitness center for both Doane and area communities, several classrooms, and office space. The center is funded in part by two longtime members of the college’s Board of Trustees, as well as their families. George and the late Sally Haddix of Ralston contributed a total of $7 million to the project. The Hall-of-Fame room included in the new space bears the name of Richard and Wanda Gibson of Council Bluffs, who donated $2.5 million toward the building.
