Marrying its 200-year history with its current commitment to athletic success, Global Prairie designed physical spaces to personify the essence of Colgate University’s student athletes for the next generation. We helped create a unifying athletic message to honor and celebrate the university’s rich athletics history during its bicentennial.

In partnership with Colgate’s Athletic Department, Global Prairie transformed the physical buildings and facilities across campus to reflect the embodiment of the University’s values and traditions. Introducing new signage, imagery and murals, our environmental design work remembers Colgate’s deep athletic past while ushering in success and kinsmanship for the next generation of Colgate student athletes.

Working with athletic department leaders, Global Prairie leveraged historical information to bring honor and passion to the football, hockey, volleyball, soccer and lacrosse programs’ histories. Pulling in historical records, artifacts and fight songs, we elevated stories from previous decades by incorporating them into athletic spaces as a canvas for storytelling.

Whether a student-athlete, alum, staff or visiting team member, these redesigned athletic environments highlight the rich history within Colgate athletics.
