Introducing Mitchell College’s New Athletics Initiative 

Join us in changing the future of athletics at Mitchell College for our students and the larger community.

Mitchell College is embarking on a $2.8 million fundraising initiative to reconfigure and enhance the athletic fields and renovate existing facilities. With over 30% of our students participating in NCAA Division III athletics and 14 Conference Championships in recent years, Mitchell College has a proud athletics tradition. In addition, many more students, faculty and staff utilize our facilities for academic courses and personal fitness. By investing in these resources, you will be helping us to change the game of how we offer athletic programming at Mitchell, increase our ability to recruit and retain scholar athletes and impact the larger community through programs and access to top-notch facilities.

Athletic Complex planned projects include:

  • Softball Field with seating/backstops/fencing/dugouts/press box
  • Baseball Field with seating/backstops/fencing/dugouts/press box
  • Synthetic multi-sport Turf Field with lighting

Yarnall Athletic Center planned projects include:

  • Coach Room
  • Officials Room
  • Team Room
  • Locker Rooms
  • Main Lobby

A few words on fit.


"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.


If you are looking for a college that: 


  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities




…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
