History of the Lifestyle Center
A construction contractor was hired and construction began in May of 1978. Construction was projected to be completed September 1979. In the summer of 1981, the pool opened for student use as well as for community swimming lessons.
In May 1981, the Union College Health Complex became officially known as the Larson Lifestyle Center, named after a physician by the name of Dr. Ernest Larson, who gave generously for the completion of the complex.
