Millis Athletic Convocation CenterEdit profile
The Millis Athletic/Convocation Center is a 1750-seat multi-purpose athletic and academic facility on the campus of High Point University in High Point, North Carolina. The basis of the building is Alumni Hall, which was built in 1957. In 1992, the facility was added upon, creating the office space, classrooms and pool on the western side of the facility, as well as adding a state-of-the-art press box.
In recent years the massive expansion of HPU has not left Millis unnoticed. A "jumbotron," an LED-powered scorers table and a four-sided scoreboard were added in the last couple years. On October 24th, 2007 (prior to the 2007-08 basketball season) two more "jumbotrons" were installed.
Much of the previous strain for space in the Millis Center has been alleviated by the recent opening of the Jerry and Kitty Steele Center.
Millis Center has hosted several notable events, such as President George W. Bush's televised 2002 speech, HPU Presidential Scholarship Weekend events, HPU men's and women's basketball games, HPU volleyball matches, and other ancillary HPU events.
