Renovations at the iconic Holt Arena have been ongoing for two years. Now, as the project reaches completion, ISU Director of Athletics Pauline Thiros invites the community to enjoy the updated facilities this Saturday, September 16th, as ISU hosts Northern Iowa for the first home game of the football season.
