Milt and Jean Cole Family Wellness and Fitness Center to open in the summer of 2013 at IU Kokomo By Danielle Rush

The Indiana University Board of Trustees last month approved the official name for the IU Kokomo wellness and fitness center, set to open next summer. It will be known as the Milt and Jean Cole Family Wellness and Fitness Center, and will house a jogging and walking track, a cardio and strength-training area, two multipurpose rooms, a health studies classroom, locker rooms and a reception area.

The name honors the $1.25 million gift the Cole family donated for the center, to be constructed in the basement of the library. This is the largest cash gift in campus history.

About Us

"I am extremely grateful and appreciative of the Cole family, whose shared vision for this campus makes a facility like this possible," Chancellor Michael Harris said. "This wellness and fitness center is essential to the future growth of this campus. It will impact thousands of people for years to come with health and educational opportunities as a result of this center." In addition to Milt and Jean Cole, the family includes Keith and Carmella Cole, and Randy and Candy Cole. They are owners of Cole Hardwood in Logansport. Construction on the 20,500-square-foot facility will begin later this year, and Harris expects a grand opening in July or August 2013. Milt and Jean Cole Print-Quality Photo

The new center will allow opportunities to offer additional allied health majors -- such as sports medicine and athletic training -- and provide year-round training space for athletes.
