Building champions for tomorrow

Intercollegiate athletics has the power to bring us together. TROJANS UNITE is a campaign designed to engage committed alumni, friends of Dakota State, and dedicated community leaders in raising private funds to advance DSU Athletics in the critical area of athletics facilities.

Top priorities

“I think the new environment would help bring more fans than ever before to DSU athletic events. It would be an honor to play in the new facilities. It would be the ultimate home court advantage.”

Josh McGreal - Men’s Basketball Player

Endless benefits

The new DSU Athletics Complex is designed to benefit and grow all of Dakota State’s current athletics programs: football, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball and softball, volleyball, cross country, track and field, cheerleading, and Esports. It also accounts for the potential addition and development of new sports programs like soccer, golf, and lacrosse.

United Impacts:

  • Balanced distribution of academic majors
  • Business partnerships
  • Increased DSU student enrollment
  • Increased revenue – generating opportunities for DSU
  • Increased revenue – generating opportunities for the Madison area

Thank you donors

"Through the help of the generous donors, alumni, and the Trojan Athletics Club, we have made significant gains in scholarship dollars. This allows our teams to offer the athletics scholarships necessary to compete with other NAIA schools in recruiting quality regional student athletes to our programs.

The next step for us to be able to compete consistently for North Star conference titles and National Championship's is the development of this athletics complex. The Fieldhouse was built 61 years ago, the football stadium has a grass surface instead of artificial turf, and we do not have an indoor practice facility, even though seven months of the year require teams to train indoors. New facilities will also be necessary as we look to add additional sports." - Jeff Dittman, Athletic Director

Our Goal? $90 million

While Dakota State's technology-infused academic reputation is a powerful incentive to potential student athletes, our recruits pay attention to the spaces where they play and where they train. These are symbols of a university's commitment to their collegiate athletic experience.
