Athletics and Boulder Staff Council recently teamed up to host an open house tour of the new facilities at Folsom Field. One longtime staff member recalled the open house when Dal Ward was built; she said at that time we thought Dal Ward was really amazing, but this new facility goes way beyond Dal Ward. Another stated that the new facility is the right combination of state-of-the-art tools, housed by a building honoring past accomplishments and CU’s traditional look.
Staff initially gathered in the Byron R. White Club Level on the east side of Folsom Field. The tours were kicked off by Athletic Director Rick George, who provided an overview of the facility and Athletic Department goals to the initial crowd of about 150 staff. Staff Council and Spirit Squad members were positioned around the facility to direct staff through the tour and keep people from getting lost. One of the favorite spots was the rooftop terrace featuring amazing views of campus and the mountains.
