Bowdoin College has announced plans to renovate Whittier Field and Magee Samuelson Track, with construction scheduled to begin in early May.
"Whittier Field has been an amazing, but somewhat hidden venue for the track program for over a hundred years. I'm so pleased that more campus programming will be able to share this wonderful field surrounded by beautiful pine trees and the impressive architecture of Hubbard Grandstand." - Track & Field Head Coach Peter Slovenski
"This project will allow our student-athletes to prepare and train in a first-rate facility while also serving as an outstanding new playing venue for the men's lacrosse program. It will also create an atmosphere that will be a fantastic gameday experience for our parents, alumni and fans." - Men's Lacrosse Head Coach Jason Archbell
"This update will preserve the unique history of one of college football's most iconic venues while providing all the amenities of a state-of-the-art facility. We're incredibly excited about what this renovation will mean to the future of the Bowdoin football program." - Football Head Coach JB Wells
