Warrior Park Construction
Indiana Tech’s Doug Edgar Indoor Track at Warrior Park began taking visible shape this summer. Ground was broken for the project in October 2021; it is expected to be complete early in 2023. The building will feature a six-lane competition track, the interior of which will have a versatile turf surface that will allow other athletic teams to utilize the space.
Artistic Expression on Campus
Two neighborhood volunteers from Fort Wayne’s East Central neighborhood paint the sidewalk above a storm drain in front of Central Grounds coffee shop. It is part of Fort Wayne’s Be River SmART initiative, a three-year collaboration between Friends of the Rivers and Fort Wayne City Utilities. Clean Drains is an education and community outreach/engagement initiative that uses art to convey the message: Only rain should go in a drain.
Summer Camp Fun
Each year, Indiana Tech opens its campus for two STEM-centric summer camps to feed the curiosity and imagination of high school and middle school students. Learn more about our summer camps at indianatech.edu/camps.
Donald Ross Golf Course
Across Calhoun Street from Warrior Park is Indiana Tech’s Donald Ross Golf Course, and it is looking might fine this summer. The course spans 3,472 yards from the longest tees for a par of 36, a course rating of 72.5 and a slope of 126. Donald J. Ross, who spent more than 40 years conceiving golf course designs, crafted the nine holes, which opened in 1927. More national championships have been played on courses designed by Donald J. Ross than any other designer. Learn more at golfdonaldross.com.
Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build
In June, Jessie Biggs, Kylene Biggs, Dr. Julie Good, Julie Farison and Jennifer Ross represented Indiana Tech during Habitat Fort Wayne’s Women Build initiative, a coming-together of volunteer teams—comprised mostly of women—that build homes for Habitat GFW partner families. If you live in the Allen, Huntington or Wells County area and want to learn more about Habitat GFW’s mission or volunteer opportunities, visit habitatgfw.com/volunteer.

During the summer, Indiana Tech Admissions hosts Become IT days for students who have been admitted into Indiana Tech and are ready to call it home! While on campus, students get to make connections with several important people and departments and get a brief lay of the land. It’s an exciting first step for new students and their parents as part of the Warrior family. Check out all the ways you can visit.
