This new turf field will give new life to the current outdated facilities. The old fields had drainage issues and the grass was unmanageable. With the constant activities on the grass, the fields could not support the school’s needs.

The new facility will be home to their baseball, lacrosse, and soccer teams. This brand-new, state of the art turf facility will provide a centralized home for SUNY Adirondack’s outdoor athletics. Currently, many teams play off campus in the surrounding community.

Over the last 10 years, SUNY Adirondack has grown their campus and continuously improved to provide the best possible support for students.  Most of the improvements made have been done to beautification of the campus, continuous improvements to the academic buildings and in 2013, the building of a resident hall.

Since the improvements to campus have gone well and created so many new opportunities for students, the school has decided to start improving their athletic facilities too. The athletic facilities are the oldest part of campus, they were built in 1967. Since they were built, almost no improvements have been made.

The school has a long history of offering intercollegiate athletics to students. As the school has grown so have their recreational opportunities for students. With the continuous improvements to the school, there has been a greater emphasis on providing students, residents, and commuters alike, with a comprehensive college experience.

SUNY Adirondack serves more than 6,000 people annually. The school boasts over 30 degree and certificate programs and had direct transfer agreements with top colleges and universities.

Stewart’s Shops supports over 6,500 organizations every year and has a goal to donate $8 million in 2022.

Supporting SUNY Adirondack is just another way, We Are Closer to You.
