RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A new wellness center opens on the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology campus on Saturday.

A dedication and tour set for 3 p.m. cuts the ribbon on the new Stephen D. Newlin Family Student Wellness and Recreation Center, which adjoins the King Center on the south end of campus.

The center offers 24,750 square feet in new construction for students, including a fitness center, expanded cardio room and weight training areas, locker rooms, a rock climbing wall and the two-court Fraser Gymnasium.

The dedication will be attended by Newlin, a 1976 Mines graduate who gave $2 million toward the $8.9 million center.

Construction is funded primarily by student fees.
