Craig WhiteMillikin University’s plan to build a new locker room at Frank M. Lindsay Field aims to directly benefit the heart of our athletic programs: student-athletes.

With their success and futures in mind, Millikin’s investment will renew our commitment to Big Blue teams and athletes, and act as a draw for the next generation of MU student-athletes.

There is no doubt that additional locker room space is needed for our athletic programs to continue to grow and thrive. The construction of this new facility will solve several existing issues while also allowing Millikin to host CCIW and NCAA competitions. Congestion in Griswold’s locker rooms will be alleviated and the immediate needs of Big Blue football and men’s and women’s track and field teams will be met. The new facility will offer Millikin home teams field-level access and is designed to feature 120 lockers with the ability to convert to two 60-locker spaces with a divider.

Competitive sports remain an important part of Millikin’s ongoing mission of Performance Learning, especially during the challenges posed by the ongoing pandemic. Since August 2020, it has been my goal to secure as many contests as possible and to make those contests meaningful for our student-athletes.

Gathering funding for the construction of this facility will go a long way toward achieving this goal, and we need your help. You can make an impact on the future of Big Blue athletic programs and student- athletes by supporting the Frank M. Lindsay Field Locker Room project.
