Bowers Stadium Press Box

A fuzzy photograph from the 1990s - back before the SH logo was adopted by the university and it graced the side of the stadium.

This photograph from 2011 shows the two new shafts and expanded ticketbooth. Don't be fooled: the shaft on the left (north) is the elevator; the shaft on the right (south) is just storage space.

The Press Box at Bowers Stadium is the three-story structure on the western side of the playing field.

The building did not undergo major renovations in its first two decades. In 2002 the newly-adopted SH logo was added to the western face of the building.

In 2004 a five-year, three-phase renovation project began. This included converting the old press level into fan suites and expanding the president's box and ensuring those changes and the entire building met safety code standards by installing new fire alarms and sprinkler systems. The third and final phase included the addition of an elevator to the press box. The elevator runs along the left (north) side of the ticket booth. To even out the look of the building, a false shaft was added to the right (south) side that house large storage closets on each level.

The third floor houses five luxury suites holding up to 6-8 people and the 50-seat President's Box.
