Building Description

Ground was broken Sept. 22, 1970, for the center with cornerstone placed by Gov. Richard Kneip Oct. 2, 1971. It opened in late January 1973 with the first basketball game Feb. 2, 1973. The NCAA Division II national wrestling tournament held there in March 1973. Total construction cost was $3,685,000. Out of 158,000 square-feet, Frost Arena comprises 18,415 square feet. The seating configuration of the arena has been changed and downsized several times since its initial opening. The center is named for Stan Marshall, athletic director from 1965 to 1980 and a national leader in the field, while the arena is named for Jack Frost, who served as athletic director and head of the physical education department from 1947 to 1960.

The swimming pool is a six-lane competition pool stretching 25 yards long with a diving well allowing for one and three meter competitions.
