Capital Projects

The arms race refers to the escalating investments being made in college athletic facilities throughout the country. Some universities invest millions in an effort to secure bragging rights.

At Long Beach State, we are fortunate because we do not have to spend as much as other universities on upgrading our facilities. We have the best geography in the world - amazing climate and three airports within short driving distance. We have world class coaches with long tenures that instill confidence. We have access to arguably the best talent pool of student-athletes in the world - Southern California. However, we must participate in the race in order to compete. While we are donor centric and will respond appropriately to interest and capacity for any of our facilities, we have two major facility campaigns at present.

Phase I comprises several capital projects and facility renovations that were deemed a priority by Long Beach State University administrators and Athletics Staff. The initial phase includes the renovation of the Men's & Women's Basketball and Volleyball Locker Rooms in the Walter Pyramid, the largest on-campus, in-arena video board, construction of a new Track & Field Complex, and the expansion of Blair Field.
