Enhancements to athletic facilities amp up atmosphere

Oct 28, 2022

During the past few years, Waynesburg Athletics has experienced a period of tremendous growth, not only on the field of play with individual and team success, but with key physical and aesthetic enhancements. 

Locker Rooms
As the Athletic Programs continue to grow, the University turned four small locker rooms into two large locker rooms, significantly renovated all three locker room areas in the field house, and also created a ‘real’ locker room at Wiley Stadium. 

"Our reasoning was to provide an atmosphere for student-athletes to prepare for competitions together, not in several different areas, allowing for an enhanced game-day atmosphere," said Adam Jack, Director of Athletics. 

Recruitment Lounge
The lobby area of the original Gym was renovated into a Recruitment Lounge, where coaches can meet with prospective student-athletes in a comfortable area, displaying images of the athlete on the video screen in the lobby and showcasing uniforms from the sport on mannequins in the display case.

Marisa Fieldhouse Video & Score Boards
This project  made a huge difference in not only the game day atmosphere, but also the experiential learning for students working with the video board, creating content for events. With the large banners, video board and scoreboard, Waynesburg University now has one of the premier venues for basketball, wrestling and volleyball in the region. This video board can also be used to show movies or stream content to the campus community for a variety of events.

Wiley Stadium Video Board
The video board has been a great addition to the facility. It brings excitement to all contests at Wiley Stadium and allows student-athletes to get the ‘big-school’ treatment through player introductions, hype videos and game highlights. Through the Department of Communication, this is another
example of experiential learning.
