---- — CLINTON — The new multi-purpose building at Ashford University’s south campus officially opened to the public this week.
University officials and the Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce celebrated the opening with a ribbon cutting.
The new building contains athletic locker rooms, public restrooms, an athletic training room and a concessions facility.
It joins an artificial turf soccer field and outdoor all-weather track that Ashford built on the site after purchasing the former Clinton Country Club property in 2010.
“Over the past three years we have significantly invested in capital projects in Clinton,” John Ballheim, Ashford vice president/campus director, said. “This new structure is the latest in a long series of projects that are continually modernizing and updating our 100-year-old campus.”
For the past three years, teams had to use locker rooms at Ashford’s main campus before and after competitions.
“The new building adds important and needed facilities to our athletic facilities,” said Meg Schebler, Ashford director of athletics.
