USC’s Galen Center Debuts

University of Southern California officials watched a dream come true October 12th – the debut of the campus’10,258-seat Galen Center arena, which hosted a women’s volleyball game against Stanford.

The $140 million facility was reportedly scheduled to break ground about seven years ago but was put on the back burner because of financial concerns.

The state-of-the-art facility will be home to the Trojan basketball and volleyball teams in addition to hosting concerts and other events.

Al Green was scheduled to perform during the venue’s grand opening October 21st.
