The Arbuckle Student Activity Center was built in 2000 and features a six lane 200- meter track, four basketball courts, rock climbing and fitness center. This is the training center for the track and field, cross country, and tennis teams.

Students and community members are welcomed to enjoy what this facility has to offer. Many student intramural sports are also housed here.

There are many groups that sign up for use of the center as well: local law enforcement, Special Olympics, church groups, schools, local fundraisers, local government agencies, local businesses, local care facilities, local teams all have an agreement and use the facility.
