As the campus looks forward to renovations to John Lance Arena, many still remember cheering the Gorillas in the original gymnasium, which was built in 1922 and razed in 1971. Known for its tight confines and steep balcony seating, the gym was noisy and raucous.

Please share your special memories of the old gymnasium and the events you remember.
