The Hunt Arena scoreboard hangs over what used to be center ice but the rest of the arena is barely recognizable as the facility undergoes major renovations as part of UWRF's $63.5 million Falcon Center project.

When completed this September, Hunt Arena will receive new top-loaded bleacher seating with a capacity of 1,400, expanded locker rooms and the concessions area and offices will be remodeled.

The entire Falcon Center project, including construction of the new Don Page Arena adjacent to Hunt Arena, is expected to be completed in August, 2017.
