Home of the Greyhounds and Zias Dedicated to providing programs and facilities that surpass the expectations of our student-athletes, our University family, our fans and our community. From the President Dear ENMU Family, I am very excited about having a new on-campus stadium. I am certain the facility will generate a new sense of enthusiasm from our students and the community, and will enhance an already strong athletic program. ENMU’s athletic heritage has a proud history and tradition of graduating distinguished alumni. Today’s student-athletes carry on this tradition of excellence in the classroom and with their teams. A vital athletic program is important to the University as a whole. The new stadium completes the campus. Thanks for your support. Dr. Steven Gamble University President

From the Stadium Campaign Chair Dear ENMU Supporters, 2014 has been very good for the Eastern New Mexico University Foundation and our efforts to raise funds for the new ENMU Stadium. The cost for the new Stadium has increased from $8 million to a $12 million so that ENMU can build a state-of-the art multi-purpose facility. With this increased costs, the Stadium will have increased seating, a new separate locker room for the Portales Ram Football team to use, additional room for concessions, a hospitality level and much, much more. In February the voters in the Portales Municipal School District, which includes the city of Portales and the surrounding areas of Roosevelt County, voted an overwhelming 86 percent in favor of approving a new bond that will provide $1 million in funding toward the costs of the stadium. With that $1 million, the ENMU Foundation has surpassed $7.3 million of our $12 million goal. ENMU needs this new stadium, and the ENMU Foundation is hoping that supporters like you will consider making a contribution to help us match the funds pledged by ENMU students and the citizens of Portales and Roosevelt County. Please take a moment to read through this material and consider becoming a donor, an investor and partner in the new stadium. Stephen Doerr (BS 77) ENMU Foundation President Stadium Campaign Chair

The Time is Now for a New Stadium ENMU and the state of New Mexico have made a sizeable investment in the Portales campus infrastructure. Since 2001, over $124 million in campus improvements have occurred. Many buildings on campus have undergone significant renovations and improvements. The entire campus looks amazing. The facilities are energy efficient and designed with a focus on what is most important to help our students achieve a quality education. The facilities featured here highlight significant building projects on campus. In addition, ENMU is currently renovating the Jack Williamson Liberal Arts Building. The Golden Library is next on the docket for renovation and modernization. The Golden Library will be part of the 2014 and 2016 New Mexico General Obligation Bonds. It is time to complete the campus and bring the stadium back to where it always belonged … on campus.

ENMU Athletics strives to be the premier Division II athletics program in New Mexico, with over 400 student-athletes in 14 programs promoting scholastic and athletic excellence on the High Plains. The young men and women representing ENMU on the field, court and track receive higher GPAs and maintain a higher graduation rate, overall, than their peers. The building of a new stadium oncampus has many benefits for the athletic department as a whole but directly affects Greyhound Football, Zia and Greyhound Soccer and Zia and Greyhound Track and Field. The soccer programs are fairly new programs to Eastern and will now have the ability to play at night in the stadium. Greyhound Football (conference champs in 2013) will be able to recruit more competitively from all over the country. Track and field will for the first time be able to host collegiate meets.

“The students saw the value in what the facility will do for their future alma mater. Even though it may not be completed before many current students graduate, it will remain a source of pride for the rest of their lives, knowing that they contributed to enhancing the campus of ENMU. Someday, some of them may bring their kids back to campus and can point to the new stadium and say they helped build it.” Justin Aguilar ENMU Student Body President

“The impact of a new multi-purpose stadium on campus will be tremendous. When one considers what this new facility will mean for Eastern Athletics, for the University and for the city of Portales, it could be one of the most significant construction projects in the history of Roosevelt County!” Dr. Jeff Geiser Director of Athletics “The construction of a new stadium on the ENMU campus will greatly enhance the rehearsal experience for every member of the Greyhound Sound Marching Band.

The Time is Now Dear Alumni and Friends of ENMU, The Time is Now to take one of the biggest and most imageenhancing steps in the history of not only our athletic program, but also the entire University. Our administration, our student body and the Portales community acknowledge the importance of this new facility to the future of our university, and they have shown their support. The Time is Now for our fans, alumni and friends to get in the game. New Mexico law does not allow state education funds to be used for construction of college athletic facilities, so private dollars are vital to our success. Although the recently-passed student fee and Portales school bond support will get us well down the road to starting this project, your gifts and commitment to ENMU’s long-awaited landmark stadium will make what was only a dream into a reality in the very near future. Won’t you join us? Play your role in this ultimate team effort and help us declare victory. Please complete the enclosed pledge form or call the ENMU Foundation for more information at 888.291.5524. Noelle Bartl (BS 92) Executive Director ENMU Foundation
