CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - The newly built student recreation and convocation center on the campus of Coastal Carolina University is set to open.
In a meeting Thursday at 1 p.m., CCU announced that Horry Telephone Cooperative is sponsoring the building, which will be called 'The HTC Center'.
HTC will be providing complimentary wiring and technical assistance to that building and providing financial support to the college as they expand.
"There are two driving factors for growing our partnership arrangement with CCU," said HTC Chief Executive Officer Mike Hagg.
"First is the ongoing business relationship that HTC has enjoyed with the University for almost 60 years. Second is the overall impact CCU has on a local and regional basis. CCU is one of our largest business customers as an institution, not to mention that many faculty, staff and students also have the opportunity for HTC services. From an economic perspective, CCU is a great resource for the community with the jobs it creates, the research it provides, and the social opportunities it offers through sports, cultural events and other on-campus activities hosted by the University. The HTC Center will add another venue as these events continue to grow," Hagg adds.
The new building will host the CCU Chanticleer basketball teams, volleyball teams and a new bookstore and has room for 3,200 fans.
