The Christen Athletic Center is the home to Dakota Wesleyan University’s athletic department offices, as well as our varsity strength and conditioning space.

The Fosness Arena, named for legendary DWU basketball coach and alumnus, Gordie Fosness (DWU Class of 1957), is located in the athletic center. This space is always busy, and in the summer months, many youth sports camps take place here.

Named for: Paul and Donna Starr Christen, DWU Classes of 1950 and 1951, respectively

Built: 1985
