Bearkat athletics is making significant efforts to enhance the overall experience for both student-athletes and fans. Recent renovations of locker rooms and club areas in Johnson Coliseum and Mafrige Field House help attract top talent by offering modern and comfortable facilities. 

The addition of new terraces on each side of Bowers Stadium will offer sightlines closer to the action and enhance the game-day experience for fans. Planned upgrades to the west side of the stadium will include a state-of-the-art press box and coaches area to provide better resources for coaches and media personnel. Additionally, new suites, club seating, concessions and restrooms will offer a new game day experience for fans.

Additional improvements include the new Chuck and Wanda Beckner Tennis Complex, installation of new turf and track surfaces at Bowers Stadium and new turf at the Bearkat Softball Stadium.  

Investments in athletic facilities and infrastructure have a positive impact on the overall success of the athletics program. These improvements also help attract more attention and support from the community and boost morale among current and prospective athletes.
