In January 2014, demolition of the historic Glen Martin Stadium began what has become a most exciting project. Since the groundbreaking ceremony on June 6, 2014, there has been an amazing transformation of the property beyond the railroad tracks on the east end of the campus. We are very grateful to our many generous project donors who are bringing KWU back to campus for practice and competition, and allowing Kansas Wesleyan to host Sacred Heart football, youth football and more.
