Drew and Brittany Brees Student-Athlete Academic Center

The Purdue University Division of Intercollegiate Athletics Academic Learning Center first opened in August 1004. In 2011, the center was named the Drew and Brittany Brees Student-Athlete Academic Center in honor of Drew and Brittany's generous donation to support the continued academic success of our 500+ student-athletes. In 2012, the Brees Center (BRES) received a facelift and underwent renovations to increase the amount of study space available for our student-athletes, taking the academic study space from 3,150 square feet to 5,350 square feet. BRES is located on the second floor of the Intercollegiate Athletic Facility (IAF) and offers several academic support services for our student-athletes including advisors' offices, tutoring, walk-in tutoring, mentoring, monitored study areas, group and individual study rooms, and the Chris Ribnek Computer Technology Center. The computer lab was dedicated in 2005 to honor Chris Ribnek, who was Academic Support Services Director from mid-2000 until succumbing to cancer in November 2002. A 74-station computer lab, the lab is owned and operated by Information Technology at Purdue (ITaP).
