A homefield advantage and a competitive edge

There is a need. A recreational resource of this caliber is not yet available in Hancock.

A boost for recruitment and retention. The Finlandia Athletics Complex is a huge step in improving the sustainability of student enrollment at Finlandia, sending a clear message that quality of student life at Finlandia is a high priority.

A competitive edge. Many of Finlandia's regional college peers have recently completed, or will soon complete, athletic facility additions, renovations, and new construction.

Supported by research. A strategic Lions football program, which the Finlandia Athletic Complex will fully accommodate, is expected to improve recruitment success in markets such as Green Bay, Chicago, and Detroit. Further, studies have indicated that general student population growth parallels the addition of football to a small college campus (New York Times, July 10, 2006).

A home field advantage and genuine collegiate experience. For the first time ever, Finlandia Soccer and Softball student­athletes will feel the pride of competing on home turf, and all students will enjoy the advantages of a home field.

Room to grow. The Finlandia Athletic Complex includes ample practice and training areas for multiple sports, as well as additional offices and classrooms, easing space constraints at the Paavo Nurmi Center and adding flexibility to practice and game scheduling.
