SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. - With the start of the new semester and Seton Hall student-athletes back on campus, the Department of Athletics & Recreation has unveiled its completed varsity locker rooms to its student-athletes for the first time. Part of the Pride & Excellence Campaign, these locker rooms provide a personal locker to each Pirates student-athlete for the first time ever.
"The locker room project is in line with our vision to give our student-athletes the best possible experience and to have it come to fruition is fantastic," Vice President and Director of Athletics Patrick Lyons said. "Anyone who is an athlete knows how important a locker room is and what it signifies. Our student-athletes have been walking around on cloud nine because they have their own locker rooms for the first time.
"This project also signifies to anyone thinking about coming to Seton Hall how serious we are about being the best and winning conference championships. I've always said that when you come to Seton Hall you'll know from the second you walk into our facilities how serious we take athletics and the pride we have in our department."

Naming opportunities within each of the locker rooms are still available as part of the Pride & Excellence Campaign. For more information contact Jay Judge at (973) 275-2202 or via email at Jay.Judge@shu.edu.
With the locker room project complete and open to the student-athletes, the focus has turned to finishing the brand-new performance training center/varsity weight room and the team video room. The performance training center/varsity weight room is tripling in size and will feature branded free-weights, platforms, benches, sprint track and cardio equipment. Built in amphitheater style the team video room will be equipped with the latest projection and surround sound systems and can accommodate 40 in custom leather seats.
The Pride & Excellence Campaign has played a key role in contributing to significant improvements within the Richie Regan Athletic Center over the past two years. Within this time frame, Seton Hall Athletics & Recreation Services has opened the Charles W. Doehler Academic Center, the Center for Sports Medicine and the new Fitness Center while a new LED scoreboard was installed at Owen T. Carroll Field.
