Aldridge Recreation Center

Aldridge Recreation Center was named for Ralph Aldridge, a former member of the William Woods Board of Trustees. He contributed funding and labor from his Kansas City-based construction company to restore Junior Lake and construct the road through the northern portion of campus. Constructed in 1964, the building contains a beautiful stone fireplace and a "family room" style meeting space used for retreats, concerts, and social gatherings. Aldridge Lounge has an indoor seating capacity up to 120, and features an adjoining deck and patio. Some University Advancement offices are located in Aldridge.
