Thanks to a See Tomorrow leadership gift from Cordell Peterson, Class of 1963, and his wife, Sandra, BVU has installed a new multi-purpose artificial turf field and a new running track this year which makes these facilities among the best in the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. We anticipate these improvements will also energize our student recruiting efforts and draw more fans to our football games, soccer matches and track and field meets. The addition of field lighting will facilitate the expansion of our athletic and intramural programs into the evening hours and provide a venue to host post-season high school athletic events.
The ongoing need for the latest in educational and research equipment is relentless, and typically comes at a high cost. We need to ensure that we provide the equipment and other campus enhancements that are necessary to enrich the learning and living experience for students across all academic disciplines.
