The seats are very narrow with very little legroom. The location is good - very near a CTA stop and parking. The restrooms are clean. The sound system and acoustics are adequate.

Husband & I had a great time at an UIC-VALPARAISO college basketball game Dec. 30. A pre-lunch BBQ we attended sponsored by the Chicago Valpo Alumni Club was handled beautifully upstairs. Seats in the arena were more comfortable than typical bleacher seating. View was exceptional....More
