FACILITIES & DIRECTIONS


Strawberry Stadium

As far as history goes, almost no place on campus can claim as much as hallowed Strawberry Stadium. Built in 1937 the venerable 7,408-seat stadium is the home of the Southeastern gridiron and track and field squads. The field was renovated in 2003 with the installation of a new state-of-the art synthetic surface called SprinTurf. Coming for the 2012 season, new turf has been installed after being used at the Mercedes Benz Louisiana Superdome.

Other upgrades including a revamped visitor’s locker room and across the board aesthetic improvements. Prior to the 2008 season, a new state-of-the-art press box with club seats and suites was constructed.

Strawberry Stadium was constructed in 1937 as part of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s WPA program under project #3014. Strawberry Stadium returned to glory August 30, 2003 as the Lions took the field for the first time in 18 years. Even as upgrades are made to the venerable facility, fans both old and new will experience the same feeling of “almost being in the game” that the charming stadium has evoked for over half a century.
