Christen Family Recreation/Wellness Center
Built in 1985 and named after Paul and Donna Christen, the Christen Family Recreation/Wellness Center is the home to Dakota Wesleyan University’s athletic department, as well as the athletic training and sports management departments.

The wellness center features workout and exercise equipment, available to all DWU personnel, in the weight room, cardio room and Cybex room. It also houses the athletic department offices, several classrooms and a full athletic training facility. Almost all of DWU’s 15 intercollegiate athletic teams use the wellness center for practice and training.

The Fosness Arena, named for legendary DWU basketball coach Gordie Fosness, is located in the wellness center. The arena is home to the Tiger volleyball and wrestling teams, who hold all of their home matches in the on-campus facility.

In addition to intercollegiate athletics, the wellness center and Fosness Arena host intramural sports, Fellowship of Christian Athletes gatherings and numerous other events throughout the course of the school year, and numerous youth sports camps during the summer months.
