跟上A的步伐.E. 芬利活动中心’s latest renovation and addition — the 18-month project to create the new Center for Student Life — on our dedicated 项目的网页, and read about the vision for holistic wellness behind programming for the space in Fit.

Commencement exercises were held in the 芬利中心’s Main Arena for many years, starting with the Class of 1974 — with then-Vice President Gerald Ford giving the address.

The 芬利中心 has been home to five state-championship basketball teams. This collage from the 2007 Corvus captures Main Arena action from (clockwise from top left) 凯西·史蒂文森08, Ryan Kelly ' 09, 杰基·布兰斯科姆,07年, 林赛·考尔,凯利,09年, 查兹·麦昆07年, Cowher Kelly和 Anya Knower ' 08. In 2019, the Main Arena court was named in honor of longtime boys basketball coach Kevin Billerman.

A student lounge in Finley provided space for relaxing activities such as ping-pong and pool (pictured here in 1976) and, as 77年的费尔利·贝尔·库克 remembers, catching up on “The Young and the Restless” on TV.

凯西·古普顿·尤根森81届 and 威廉·本·罗斯,83年 remember the excitement of pep rallies, as shown in this 1981 photo of cheerleaders building a classic pyramid.

“The King and I” was staged in the 芬利中心 in both 1983-84, with 艾米·舍勒·斯帕克斯,84年 (at bottom) as Lady Thiang, and again in 1992-93 (at top). 作为castmates 香农·杜利,98年的雷内拉 and 凯蒂·普雷塞尔·吉莱斯皮,95年 remember, the latter was the last musical performed there, as the Fine Arts Center opened in 1993.

At top, members of the Class of 2021 enjoy a pep rally in the A.E. 芬利中心s Main Arena, captured in the 2015 Corvus yearbook.
