ATHLETIC FACILITIES MASTER PLAN
Following the 2012-13 season, historic success presented Ragin’ Cajuns Athletics with unprecedented opportunity. In conjunction with 360 Architecture, a three-tiered Athletic Facilities Master Plan that would plot out progress for much-needed facility upgrades was developed. Today, Tier 1 is complete, and Tier 2 is officially underway. From updated locker rooms and additional seating, to the largest Student-Athlete Performance Center in the Sun Belt Conference, our athletics infrastructure is stronger than ever before!
Tier 1 projects include improvements with the highest level of urgency.
All three Tier 1 projects have been completed.
CAJUN FIELD IMPROVEMENTS
Improvements include 5,642 new end zone seats, upgraded concessions and restrooms.
SOCCER/TRACK OFFICES & LOCKER ROOMS
STUDENT-ATHLETE PERFORMANCE CENTER
At 100,000 square feet, it’s the largest of its kind in the Sun Belt Conference, boasting a 12,000-square-foot weight room, second-level cardio deck, training room that includes a hydro-therapy area, 150-seat auditorium, players’ lounge, football locker room and more!
Tier 2 projects include only three facilities, but they are the most extensive and require the greatest investment. These projects will transform our athletics program, elevating us to the top tier of facilities nationwide. It will be the most monumental improvement to Ragin’ Cajuns Athletics since the current complex was built in 1971.
