Expanding its investment in athletics, Muskingum University announced today that a second, multi-purpose turf athletic field is being added to north campus to accommodate additional athletic events and practices. The project is scheduled for completion in July 2017.
"As part of our holistic approach to education, students at Muskingum are encouraged to participate in a variety of co-curricular activities, and the popularity of athletics and intramurals in particular has created the need for an additional multi-purpose space," said Philip Laube, Vice President of Business and Finance at Muskingum University. "A second turf field will create scheduling flexibility for our athletic and intramural programs, as well as additional opportunities to collaborate with our community partners."
Preparations for the field will include the space and infrastructure necessary for future expansion projects, including features like stadium lighting, a press box and a concession area.
