Facilities Outdoor Recreation
Odyssey of the Mind

Iowa State University and the Ames Community will be hosting the 2022 World Finals of Odyssey of the Mind, a creative problem-solving program involving students from kindergarten through college.

As a result, our facilities will have a huge influx of guests and may be a bit crowded while the competition takes place May 26 – May 28. Both State Gym top rope and bouldering wall will be closed May 26 – May 28 to accommodate the competition. Beyer Hall lap swim will also be closed to patrons on May 26th and May 27th. Thank you for your patience while we host this prestigious event.
