Victory Through Valley
Recruiting – Brand and image are an extremely important part of the recruiting process. We recruit on a national level every year and strive to make sure that our brand and image is of the highest quality. We need the VFC to reflect that in every way so recruits see our dedication, commitment and investment in this program through our facilities.
Competitiveness – To remain a competitive program and provide the best opportunity for success to our student-athletes, we must keep up with current national trends in college football. Facilities have become one of the biggest trends for competitive programs around the country and must remain a priority for us in order to win a Pac-12 Championship and the Rose Bowl.
Functionality – The current state of the VFC does not allow our student-athletes and/or staff to function as efficiently as possible moving throughout their respective day. We’ve outgrown the building and our facilities must grow as our program continues to grow.
The transformational $42-million Victory Through Valley fundraising campaign supports a project that will add 37,870 square feet and renovate 25,830 square feet of existing space.

“The momentum of Victory through Valley fundraising has been inspiring. The people we have engaged are excited not only about the direction of the program on the field but the commitment to excellence in our facilities and programs that support our student-athletes.”
“We are grateful for the response we have received from leadership donors. We know there are many more individuals who love this program and this university, and success of this expansion project will occur because all of Beaver Nation is involved. My staff and I look forward to having those conversations as we move forward.”
