Wake Forest University Holds Grand Opening for New Sutton Center

Wake Forest students and the staff of Campus Recreation and the Office of Well-being recently celebrated the completion of Phase 1 of the Reynolds Gym Transformation and Expansion project.  The Sutton Center is the first of three phases designed by RDG that will transform the 60 year old Reynolds Gymnasium, a longstanding workhorse of Wake Forest’s Reynolda Campus, and provide a new home for expanded and renovated facilities serving Student Recreation and Wellness, Student Health Services, and Women’s Volleyball. The Sutton Center is a 40,000 SF expansion to the gym, featuring two full-sized courts and an entire basement space designated for Outdoor Pursuits.


“With this addition, a new day is upon us, a new way to look at recreation is here and a new commitment to a full, whole and happy Wake Forest community life will be within each person’s choice menu,” said Director of Campus Recreation Max Floyd. “This change is making a tangible statement of the university’s commitment for the health and well-being of all community members.”


With the new Sutton Center addition, and the soon to commence Phase II renovation, this prominent facility allows state-of-the-art programs to be organized with a high degree of transparency creating a visually dynamic experience throughout! Reynolds Gym is becoming a building transformed, and will be an appealing activity and gathering space for students, faculty and staff.
