Athletics has been part of life at E&H since the first students arrived in 1838. Thomas “Bingo” Fullerton, hired as athletic director in 1914, is credited with establishing a program that reflects the ideals of athletics at a liberal arts institution.
Coaches like Fred Selfe continued the tradition of a talented, dedicated staff whose impact follows students throughout their lives.
About 35 percent of our student body plays on 14 varsity teams. Most of these teams will benefit directly or indirectly from the Fred Selfe Athletic Stadium.
An upgrade of the stadium will allow far more athletes – and the student body as a whole – to have access to a quality surface, which positively affects student recruitment and retention. We need top-rated facilities that match our exceptional student athletes.
