Greyhound Stadium Construction is Underway
Exciting times for ENMU and Portales. Construction has begun on the new Greyhound Stadium thanks to the early supporters of this project. A lot of dirt has been moved and beams are being erected. The new stadium will open for the Fall 2016 sports season. Alumni can view the construction progress via the web cam as the progress continues.
The Greyhounds are 1st and Goal
The University and community have continually strived for excellence in all that they do, and the Stadium is no exception. The plans for the project (Phase 1 and Phase 2) have a price tag of $1.5.5 million, and from students, community leaders, donors and others, $14 million of that has been committed to the project.
Many have already "suited up" to take all the Greyhounds to victory on this important project. We hope that you earnestly consider how you can make an impact for the whole Eastern New mexico "team". It doesn't matter if you prefer to cross the goal line, kick the winning goal or cross the last hurdle, THE TIME IS NOW TO TAKE THE GREYHOUNDS TO VICTORY!
We need your support with the final $1.5 million

Students were the first to lead the Stadium Campaign
Students at Eastern New Mexico University approved a student fee increase of $40 per semester for full-time students ($3.33 per credit hour for part-time students) to fund $4 million over 30 years of a proposed $14.5 million new multi-purpose stadium on campus.
The vote passed with an overwhelming 83% showing support for the facility (1,052 of 1,237 voted in favor).
It will be located on the ENMU campus and have synthetic turf. In addition to the football team, it will be used by the track and field team, the Greyhound Sound marching band practices, and available for soccer and intramural competitions. The stadium will also be the home field for Portales High School. Concerts and graduation ceremonies could also be held at the facility.
The current Greyhound Stadium, located seven miles from campus on Highway 70 between Portales and Clovis, is 47 years old and needs extensive renovation.
“We are grateful to our students for having the vision and selflessness to approve the increase in student fees,” said Steven Gamble, ENMU president. “Even those who may have graduated by the time the new facility is completed understood that this project will move Eastern forward in staying competitive with other universities. It will be a point of pride for all current and future students, and will only enhance the already great value of having a degree from ENMU.”
