Dickinson already has very strong athletics programs to begin with. Having top facilities is only going to take us further.
—Catherine Campbell '12
I had never played squash before arriving at Dickinson and am now
utterly hooked. I’m excited to see the college make concrete steps
toward building a squash program here. We’ll be better able to draw
students from top schools and inner cities and, of course, from the 142
countries that play squash.

The Kline Fitness Center expansion will provide additional space and resources for Dickinson's varsity athletes and all students. The addition of five regulation-sized squash courts will enable the college to launch intramural, club and varsity squash teams, which will enhance recruiting efforts. The expanded facility will include:
- a new, larger fitness center
- a five-court squash center
- a café
- and an outdoor sport court.
The expansion project aims to make the Kline Fitness Center a destination space on campus not only for athletics but also for social interaction and collaborative study outside of the classroom. To this end, the project will add indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, a new cafe and a new main entrance that raises the building's prominence on campus.
