The Allee Gymnasium building was a welcome addition to the campus and was heavily used. The steel truss-roof construction eliminated post and beams, allowing an open view across the gymnasium space. After upgrades in 1991 and 2001-02, the building continues to be busy with athletic activities.
Allee hosted the first NCAA basketball tournament on December 28, 1950. A magazine article of May 1950 suggested that the college received high return on the construction dollars spent for Allee Gymnasium.
