Our on-campus athletic facilities include over 30 acres of athletic fields, state-of-the-art athletic and fitness centers, as well as two gymnasiums. We recently completed construction on O'Hara Field and the Steward Family Aquatic Center. Both facilities are best-in-class and provide great flexibility for student-athletes, greatly enhanced spectator experiences and a distinct home-field advantage.
