Lindenwood University is in the final stages of an aggressive fundraising campaign called “LU to D2,” seeking to raise $1 million by March 1 in order to apply for matching funds from the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation. All monies raised would go toward construction of a three-story athletic building to be built overlooking Hunter Stadium.
Lindenwood University plans to construct a 43,450-square-foot athletic building with an academic support center, new locker rooms for football and other Hunter Stadium sports, coaches’ offices, and a Hall of Fame Room. Officials hope the three-story building will be ready for the school’s first football game in 2012.
