Mt. Aloysius College
Athletic Convocation & Wellness Center
Nestled in the hills of Western Pennsylvania, Mt. Aloysius College traces its roots back to the mid 1800’s in the life of the Religious Sisters of Mercy of Dublin, Ireland. Today, more than 2,500 students are enrolled in over 70 programs including Health Sciences and Nursing, Education, Natural and Applied Sciences, Business Administration, and Pre-Professional Study.
The College boasts one of the smallest average class sizes focusing on personal faculty involvement and produces more than 1/3 of the region’s nurses and imagers.
The new Athletic Convocation and Wellness Center serves as a central focal point on campus. This 87,000 square foot, $25 million facility, features premiere wellness, recreation, academic, and athletic accommodations.
The Athletic center includes a multi-use primary event space with a seating capacity of 2,000, and is augmented with an auxiliary gym, numerous smart classrooms, conference rooms, weight room, and a first class fitness center.
Primary Event Space
A large, high-performance, audio system was installed featuring the new Bose progressive directivity array loudspeakers. These speakers are designed to deliver concert quality sound with high energy and incredible speech intelligibility.
Supplementing the audio system is a complete high definition video production system anchored by a NewTek Tri-Caster live production streaming switcher, Chyron HD graphics system, and multiple Vaddio robotic cameras.
The entire sound and video production systems are designed to reduce the number of operators needed to produce an event. Simple, easy to use, interfaces leverage integration and automation, bringing incredible flexibility to the facility.
