The George W. Woodruff Physical Education Center opened its doors to the Emory community in August of 1983. The $20 million physical education center was named in honor of Mr. George W. Woodruff, a well-known Atlanta engineer, businessman, corporate leader, philanthropist and trustee of the University, for his significant role in the transfer of the $105 million Emily and Ernest Woodruff Fund to Emory.
The Woodruff Physical Education Center is home to Play Emory and Intercollegiate Athletics. Emory has hosted numerous special events, including University Athletic Association (UAA) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) championship athletic events, the Georgia State Special Olympics, the National Transplant Games, the National Veterans' Wheelchair Games, President Clinton's Address, 1996 Olympic Training, and much more.
