France A. Córdova Recreational Sports Center (West Lafayette, Ind.)
- Existence: 1958-
The recreational gymnasium was built in 1958. The facility provided recreational and intramural athletic facilities to the student body and, at the time, was the first university building in the United States created solely to serve students' recreational needs. In 1983, an addition was added and, in 2012, a major renovation and expansion took place. During the 2012 expansion the building was renamed the France A. Córdova Recreational Sports Center.
