Building Greatness

Future Bronco hall of famers will train here. You can support them and student athletes of all stripes.

We’ll be opening doors to a new era in Bronco athletics soon—literally.

The Stephen C. and Patricia A. Schott Athletic Excellence Center will enhance and elevate the prominence of athletics at SCU.

How so? The planned 50,000-square-foot building near Leavey Center will give Division I student athletes room to train, practice, and study as a team, while increasing space for students in club and intramural sports.

Call it a deepened dedication to greatness.

And credit in no small part gifts of $15 million from Stephen C. Schott ’60 and Patricia A. Schott, and $10 million from Mary Stevens ’84 and Mark Stevens.

Steve Schott’s education was made possible by an athletics scholarship, and he knows his gift not only helps student athletes but also means there will be more room for all students to achieve their health and fitness goals.

“It’s going to serve not just the athletes, but the entire student body,” he says.
