Raider Athletics Housing Campaign
Help us keep the magic -- give to the Raider Athletics Housing Campaign today!
The 2014-15 season was something Hollywood couldn’t have scripted. It was truly magical with all four sports competing in the postseason, NWF State earning conference and state titles, and not one but TWO NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS in men’s basketball and baseball!
In addition to all of the wins and championships last season, 93 percent of our sophomore athletes graduated, which is well beyond the national average. Furthermore, every single sophomore who wanted to continue his or her playing career ended up receiving a scholarship to a four-year institution.
As we turn the page on last season’s fantastic achievements, we now embark on a new year that promises to be equally exciting and challenging. One challenge, however, that we must address in order to maintain our success and continue to attract the nation’s best student-athletes is the current infrastructure at the athletic housing facilities.
Internet access – Currently our student-athletes do not have Internet access. This makes it extremely difficult for them to study and do their homework, especially with so much of today’s instruction being done via the Internet.
Cable access – Many of our student-athletes cannot afford cable so they go the entire school year without being able to watch television during downtime. Our student-athletes work very hard every day, and we would love to be able to provide them with a basic form of entertainment.
Laundry facility – Our apartments do not have washers and dryers in each unit. Instead, our student-athletes must use the laundry facility, which has not been renovated since it was built in the 1980s. The current structure is falling apart, the lighting is substandard, and the building is not up to code. We need to make improvements in this building so our student athletes can safely and comfortably wash their clothes.
Gifts to Raider Athletics Campaign will help upgrade Raider Athletics facilities and improve the lives of NWF State College student-athletes for years to come.
