ICE HOCKEY LOCKER ROOMS


The locker room renovation was a top priority for our hockey programs, having a huge impact on the day-to-day training of our student-athletes and largely impacting recruiting for our next generation of Eagles. The project was funded by more than 175 donors, of which 121 are former Men's Hockey players.
