“LIU Post is proud to launch the Pioneer Spirit Campaign to bring alumni, students, parents, faculty, and staff together behind a collective goal—to raise a new stadium that will greatly enhance the student experience.”

“My participation as a student-athlete was a major influence in my life. It armed me with self-discipline, a sense of responsibility to the team, and the confidence to take risks. I now have the ability to give back and make a positive impact in the lives of current students and I haven’t hesitated. As alumni, we all have the ability to make a difference, and this campaign gives us the opportunity to do so.”

“Will Rodgers said, ‘Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.’ This is our rallying cry at LIU Post athletics. We teach our athletes to never accept status quo. The campaign will allow the program to keep moving forward with strength—that’s what Pioneer Spirit is all about.”

 

Bryan Collins
Athletic Director/Head Football Coach

 


“I have chosen to take a lead role in the campaign because my wife and I are both graduates, our daughter is a current student, and our closest friends today are people we met while at Post. I feel a tremendous responsibility to watch out for the university’s future. As alumni, I think we all carry that obligation.”

"LIU cuts a pretty big path across Long Island. Tens of thousands of people pass through its doors daily – educationally, culturally, and economically its presence is felt by most of us who live and raise our families here. This project is important, not only for the boost it brings to the Post community, which is its own little powerhouse, but for the effect it will have on our Long Island community. Want to see a great football or lacrosse game on Long Island? Plan to bring your families because Post is where it’s at right now and I’m committed to seeing it grow even stronger in the future."

“As a member of the Pioneers lacrosse team, I would be grateful for the opportunity to play in a new stadium. A new facility would stand as an important symbol of our school spirit and the pride in our campus.”

 

Ashley Olen

“My teammates and I are encouraged to know that the new stadium is being supported by alumni. It is always great to meet former athletes during practice and to see them on the sidelines during games. I look forward to joining this great network of people when I graduate.”

 

Andrew Jackson
Football

 


“One of the most important components of the game is the field you play on. To have a field that is in excellent condition, within a first-class stadium, would be a dream come true for me and my teammates.”
