The Virginia Tech Athletics Department received the largest donation in university

history when Tech President Dr. Timothy Sands and Director of Athletics Whit

Babcock announced on Dec. 18 the securing of a $15.2 million gift from a family who

wished to remain anonymous. The money will be used to construct a 17,000-square

foot Student-Athlete Performance Center as part of a renovation and expansion of the

fourth floor of the Jamerson Athletics Center. The remainder of the costs for the $16.5

million project, which takes the place of the current Bowman Room, has been taken

care of by other families. The center will provide space for multiple uses, including

donor hospitality functions before football and basketball games, departmental

meetings, recruiting functions, etc., but will be used primarily to provide meals for

Tech’s approximately 600 student-athletes. Athletics department officials plan to enter

into the design phase quickly and hope to conclude the project by the start of the

2019 football season.
