Athletics Breaks Ground on New Stadium

The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation hosted a ground breaking ceremony on Saturday, April 28 to commemorate the start of the project to construct the College's new athletic stadium.

The new 2,000-seat, lighted stadium will employ synthetic turf and include a scoreboard, pressbox building, pavilion, team rooms and a spectator support building. The stadium will primarily support men’s and women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s field hockey and intramural programs.
