Major renovations[edit]

In 2008, the university completed a renovation project with the overall cost at approximately $800,000.[1] Improvements included an artificial turf field and outdoor all-weather lights.[1] The field enhancements were funded through new gift resources as a part of the university's $110 million "Dreams. Discovery. Direction" campaign.[1]
