A picture of the brick with my daughters' names inscribed that I purchased for the Arena plaza.
The Grand Opening of Chaifetz Arena, was simply that, grand!
Everything turned out better than I would have hoped and there is so much excitement on our campus!
We are especially excited about the arena, because our students will get to use it as their laboratory.

On a personal note, this is a very proud day for me. I worked in SLU Athletics for 7 years and loved every minute of it. But I did know that West Pine Gym was an antiquated facility and we just made the best of it. Today, I went back to West Pine to turn in my keys and pick up the rest of my stuff from the Athletic Training Room. I am so happy for JB, Miya, Theresa, Angie and all of the athletic staff as they move into the facility that they and the Billiken athletes deserve.
If you attended the Grand Opening, I would love to hear your impression of the arena and specifically its sports medicine facilities. Please post a comment!
