The Davis Event Center in Fulton on a Sunny Afternoon

Pictured above is the new Davis Event Center on the Itawamba Community College campus in Fulton. The facility was named in honor of brothers and businessmen Buster and Bud Davis, former coaches at the college and long-time supporters of the institution.

The Davis Event Center serves the college for such activities as men’s and women’s basketball games, graduation ceremonies, and concerts. The Events Center has a fixed seating capacity of 2,800 and can expand that capacity to 3,500 for special events such as concerts by placing additional seating on the court. The adjoining Fitness Center has weight training, aerobics and cardiovascular rooms. In addition, it contains four classrooms for the Health and Physical Education curriculum and an intramural gym that can accommodate basketball, volleyball, and tennis. The Fitness Center opened in mid October of 2006, and the first regular basketball games were played on January 11, 2007, in the Event Center.

The facility is just north of West Main Street in Fulton near the college stadium.
