The CRC is also a world class aquatic facility for men's and women's varsity swimming and diving team, and attracts premier national, state and local aquatic events.
Georgia Tech's original Student Athletic Center (SAC) was built in 1977. In 1996, Georgia Tech was chosen as the site of the 15,000 seat aquatic venue for the Summer Olympics in Atlanta .
The facility was attached to the existing complex and was built as a freestanding, outdoor shelter for the swimming and diving competitions. After the Olympics, the aquatic facility was incorporated into what we now call the Campus Recreation Center.
