Lee Sanders Aquatic Center
The new Lee Sanders Aquatic Center, named in memory of a beloved 1960 alumnus, includes a 25m seven lane competitive swim pool, a 20 ft by 25ft shallow recreation pool area, and plenty of deck space to take in the Southern California sunshine (with sunscreen applied of course). The pool is also regulation water polo size allowing it to be flexible for many potential uses in the future. A changing and restroom building located just off the pool deck gives students the convenience to change and use the restroom without having to return to their dormitories to prepare for swimming activities. Wonderful views of the Besant Hill campus, the Topa Topa Mountains, and the Ojai Valley can be seen from every area of the pool deck, as the placement of the facility is perfect to maximize the natural aesthetics.
