The Athletics-Recreation Center has been home to the Crusader volleyball team since the ARC was opened in 1984.
The ARC arena currently has 5,000 seats and will accommodate 6,000. The arena is complemented by an attractive entrance, lobbies, ticket offices, and permanent display cases.
Since the original completion of the ARC, renovation of the existing facility has provided upgraded facilities for all Valpo students and faculty, including a new weight room, classrooms, locker rooms, and staff offices.
A new cardiovascular room for students was constructed during 2005, and the Mosak Performance Center was created as a weight room facility for varsity athletes. Most recently, the arena underwent an upgrade in the summer of 2011, as a four-sided full color video display board was installed above center court. New side scoreboards were also installed.
The Valpo volleyball team enjoys a distinct home-court advantage at the ARC. The Crusaders are 48-14 on their home court since the start of the 2008 campaign, including a 9-2 mark and the Popcorn Classic tournament championship last season in 2013.
