PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The Providence College Athletic Department is proud to announce that it has received a $340,000 anonymous donation to be used for renovations to Schneider Arena. This money will be used to replace the existing seats with silver and black state-of-the-art seats. It also will be used to make other upgrades to the arena. The $340,000 is the largest single donation ever given to the PC athletic department. This fiscal year, Providence College has raised more than $1.8 million, which is the highest total ever raised in one year by the athletic department.
"We are very excited about this gift and the opportunity it gives us to improve Schneider Arena," Athletics Director Bob Driscoll said. "Our goal is to become one of the top programs in the nation and improvements to our facility is one of the elements that will enable us to get to the next level."
The 3,030 new seats will be installed this summer and the project will be completed by October 1. This will be the first phase of multiple renovations to Schneider Arena. Included in these renovations will be the Friends of Friar Room, a new training room, new office space, updated lockerrooms and concession areas.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for our program," Friar Men's Hockey Head Coach Tim Army said. "We're very proud of Schneider Arena and this gives us the opportunity to provide some positive renovations."
If you are interested in supporting this project, please contact Steven Napolillo, Associate Athletic Director for the Friar Athletic Fund at (401) 865-2677 or snapolil@providence.
