Bulldogs Behind the Scenes: Romano Gymnasium

Join former UMD Bulldog Basketball Head Coaches and current athletic administrators, Karen Stromme and Gary Holquist in a Virtual Bulldogs Behind the Scenes tour of Romano Gymnasium exploring recent renovations including historical perspectives.

Romano Gymnasium has been the home of Bulldog Men’s and Women’s Basketball and Volleyball for over a half-century. The historic facility opened December 12, 1953 and underwent a renovation in 1986 as well as a significant remodel throughout 2019-2020. Romano Gymnasium is the largest indoor gathering space on the UMD campus and one of the larger venues in Northern Minnesota. The space is a highly visible area of campus that is seen by all students, University employees, and community. It is often looked at as the “front porch” of the institution. Romano Gymnasium is much more than an athletic team space, event space, and teaching space - it is a community space.

*This event was recorded via Zoom on October, 20 2020.*

Bulldogs Behind the Scenes is a UMD alumni event that gives you an inside look at local industry leaders. Alumni and friends will enjoy facility tours, access to company leadership, and connecting with each other through curiosity and learning.
