If you travel the campus loop road that circles behind Fullerton Field, the college football field, you will come to the King Health and Physical Education Center. This modern gymnasium was built in 1970, funded in part by a gift from E. Ward King of Kingsport, Tenn. The building memorializes Mr. King’s father, John Rutledge King. An adjoining junior Olympic swimming pool was added in 1975. In 2000, a large addition to the center was completed, providing a new fitness center, additional locker space, and new racquetball courts.
