Appleton Arena Phase II
The George W. Karpus ’68 Athletic Center at Appleton Arena will include locker rooms and facilities for the men's and women’s lacrosse, field hockey, softball, and men's and women’s rowing teams. It will also include an expansion of the Michael “Buddy” Cornacchia ’74 Strength and Conditioning Center to prepare Division III student-athletes for competition. Supporting this exciting, new chapter of Appleton Arena will ensure a successful experience for generations of future Saints.
The Bloomberg Finance Lab
The Bloomberg Finance Lab will feature 15 student Bloomberg Terminal stations and an instructor desk in a striking contemporary design, with glass enclosures for optimal sightlines, modern, highly functional furnishings, and immediate visibility from ODY’s main floor. The project is now underway with an anticipated opening in January 2023.
The 50-50s Don Leet Legacy Fund
“The 50-50s Don Leet Legacy Fund” (“50-50s Fund”) is a new endowment fund, supported by donors to the men’s lacrosse program, to honor and support men’s lacrosse student-athletes as they strive to uphold the values of character, competitiveness, grit, effort, determination, persistence, teamwork and the pursuit of excellence so important to Coach Leet’s daily philosophy as a coach, mentor, husband, father and friend.
In our first episode of season two, we hear from Cooper McCrillis '21 whose Laurentian story is anything but normal. In the spring of 2020, Cooper and his classmates went through more than one "once-in-a-lifetime" experience when the COVID-19 Pandemic brought an end to their semester abroad in Kenya.
