“I am very excited to be here and a part of such a major project,” Knight said.

“I look forward to working with the student organizations and the varsity hockey teams. I am also very excited about working with the various community groups.”

Knight said the Arena will offer many activities for area residents, including learn to skate, hockey and figure programs, broomball and public skating sessions.

Knight is a native of southern Indiana and earned a bachelor’s in communications from Southern Indiana University.

The Ice Arena is the first of a five-phase plan to construct PSU’s new ALLWell Center complex (Active Living, Learning, and Wellness). Future phases of the ALLWell Center will house classrooms, research laboratories, lecture halls, offices, multipurpose activity laboratories, conference rooms, and general support areas for academic and athletic programs. The Ice Arena will be built to meet LEED Silver standards by installing sophisticated geothermal heating/cooling design to maximize energy conservation opportunities.
