On June 21, 2013, President Karen L. Gould and Director of Athletics Bruce Filosa cut the ribbon on a new Athletics Hall of Fame. Relocated to the second floor of the West Quad Center from its former home in Roosevelt Hall, the Hall of Fame was updated with new plaques honoring each of its 96 members, some of whom were in attendance for the ceremony. Although a new class of athletes has not been inducted since 1991, there are plans to do so in the future. According to Filosa, a committee that includes college administrators, students and former honorees will choose students based on academic and athletic performance. Of the new installation, the president said, "We are proud to continue the tradition of cultivating strong scholar-athletes and provide a new home for our past and future Hall of Famers."
