Making a Splash!

The Meek Aquatics and Recreation Center—home of the Battling Bishop men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams—boasts a 10-lane pool, a 13-foot-deep diving well, and 1-meter and 3-meter diving boards.

The facility is always free for OWU students to use and has hosted a belly-flop fraternity fundraiser, an Anchor Splash sorority fundraiser, and dive-in movies to help students float away stress.

The Meek Center, which opened in fall 2010, is Ohio Wesleyan's first "green" building, featuring a 90-well geothermal energy system that helps heat and cool the building, as well as a heat-recovery system that heats water for the pool.

The U.S. Green Building Council awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Silver Certification to the Meek Center, making it the first LEED-certified building constructed on the Ohio Wesleyan campus.

The Meek Center is named in recognition of 1959 OWU graduates Phillip J. and Nancy La Porte Meek, who gave a lead gift of $3.5 million to help fund the $10 million facility.
