Introducing Mitchell College’s 2020 Athletics Initiative 

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

Mitchell College is embarking on a $3.5 million fundraising initiative to renovate our athletics fields and facilities.

Mitchell College enjoys a proud athletics tradition. Today, we celebrate…

  • 37% of our students participating in NCAA Division III sports
  • 16 titles since joining the New England Collegiate Conference in 2008-09
  • a baseball team that has recorded the fourth-highest win percentage in the country over the past five years

In addition to NCAA sports, Mitchell’s robust intramural, club and recreational sports program offers a variety of options for all students to remain active while in college, and our facilities are regularly utilized by faculty, staff, and students 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.

With your support, together we can:

  • increase our ability to recruit and retain scholar athletes
  • galvanize our fan base by enhancing the game day experience
  • build strong community partnerships through programs and access to top-notch facilities

Athletics planned projects include:

  • Baseball Complex with new artificial turf baseball field/elevated press box/scoreboard/dugouts/fence & windscreens/bleachers/batting cage/bullpens

Mitchell begins work on new outdoor athletic complex

Published by The Day | April 11. 2020 4:54PM
By Gavin Keefe

Construction is underway on a new Mitchell College outdoor athletic complex, weeks earlier than expected due to the cancellation of the spring sports season and students leaving campus.
It’s a welcomed piece of good news for the college.

Read full story here.

“The new turf complex...

…is the culmination of years and years of hard work and dedication by past athletes in this department. We have been one of the most successful programs in the country and now we will have a facility that mirrors our success and the efforts that we as a program put into this each day. It will be another distinctive feature on our beautiful campus that will help separate Mitchell College and the athletics department from other campuses.”

Travis Beausoleil – Head Baseball Coach

"I can’t express enough...

…how happy I am. The addition of a new field brings exciting opportunities for me as an athlete. I anticipate high impact on both my sports – women’s lacrosse and women’s soccer – and am very thankful for this new addition to Mitchell College.”

Hannah Corrigan – Junior Women’s Soccer and Women’s Lacrosse player

"This turf is going to...

…create tremendous opportunities for Mitchell College. Having a beautiful, new, state of the art facility is going to help us fulfill our vision for Mitchell Athletics and be able to compete at the level that all of the coaches, administrators, and student athletes are working so hard to achieve.” 

Devyne Doran – Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach

"My team and I are...

…excited about how this new field can help us reach our goals of where we want to be…part of the national conversation. With a new turf field, the weather won’t have as much of an impact on us – fewer days off, more days to work harder and get better.” 

James Giovanniello – Sophomore Men’s Lacrosse player

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.
