02 - 18 - 2014 Bryce Jordan Center to close for the summer
[CDT] - The Bryce Jordan Center will be closing. But not to worry...the venue will undergo repairs to prepare for future events. Penn Stateâs top concert venue and indoor sports facility is closing for roof and floor repairs after spring commencement on May 10, and its doors wonât reopen until summer commencement Aug. 16. The BJC's director of sales and marketing Bernie Punt said that the center's 19-y/o concrete floor will need to be replaced but will involve more than just pouring new concrete. Roof work, masonry restoration and the replacement of the centerâs lightning protection system are all part of the plan.
