Bearcat Arena

Northwest's extensive facilities will keep you busy, whether you're in class or just having fun. The Lamkin Activity Center has been recently renovated, and the main gymnasium, Bearcat Arena, received new seats, new decor and air conditioning.

Foods Lab

The foods lab, renovated in 2012, is composed of stainless steel and state-of-the-art food production equipment. The renovations included countertops, flooring, stainless steel prep-tables and lab stool, improved modernized technology for demonstration, and designed so students can design food science experiments and learn food preparation techniques.
