Arizona State football’s move to a new facility at the north end of Sun Devil Stadium opened up much needed space in the Carson Center at the stadium’s south end for a growing athletic department. With the additions of NCAA hockey, men’s tennis, women’s lacrosse and women’s triathlon since 2015, ASU was outgrowing the Carson Center, built in 1988 and remodeled in 2002. Now with a re-design of the Carson Center third floor, formerly occupied by football, the new Watts Center for Academic Excellence and Championship Life is a major upgrade in academic support all ASU athletes. “There are similarities for the football operational move,” Boyd said. “We went from having not all necessities met and not many luxuries to a space that functionally provides everything you need to be a high caliber performer. This is an upper tier academic performance center.” The 12,500-square-foot Watts Center includes seven rooms, including a computer lab and large open study area. The Championship Life suite can be used in multiple ways including for resume writing workshops and employer interviews. There are 99 work stations, areas with large screens for group study and a nutrition station. -Jeff Metcalfe, azcentral sports, Read More
