The Kovalchick Complex opened in March, and its first few months were marked by nearly constant activity.
There were big events in the Ed Fry Arena and smaller ones—like an appearance by comedian Rob Riggle—in Toretti Auditorium. The Harlem Globetrotters awarded the complex a red, white, and blue Money Ball in recognition of breaking turnstile records during the team’s 4 Times the Fun North American tour. In the line-up of future shows, Disney on Ice: Mickey and Minnie’s Magical Journey is slated for four days in December.

When the circus came to town in April, the complex hosted eight performances over a five-day period of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s Zing Zang Zoom, Gold Edition.
As March ended, more than eight hundred students, faculty members, alumni, and business professionals celebrated the Eberly College’s thirty-third annual Business Day. Now named in honor of the late Charles Stevenson, each year’s event includes a luncheon, panel discussions, and networking.
Rapper Waka Flocka Flame performed at the complex in late March.
For the first time in decades, few worried about rain dampening the spring Commencement ceremony. The May 7 event in the Kovalchick Complex was climate controlled and comfortable for graduates and guests alike.
