From the President

The Need

Access to quality wellness and recreation facilities is a definite expectation for today's students when selecting a university. Knowing this, the St. Ambrose Board of Trustees approved plans for the construction of a new wellness and recreation center as the highest priority in a 10-year master plan created in fall 2011.

We did it and then some! Our 2017 Day of Giving raised over $194,000 for the new Wellness and Recreation Center! With challenges and giveaways, supporting SAU was rewarding and fun for alumni, students, parents, faculty and staff! Thanks to everyone for stepping up for St. Ambrose!
