Dawg Pound Refresh 2020

This campaign ended on November 17, 2019, but you can still make a gift to The Citadel by clicking here!

The epicenter of The Citadel Athletic Department is The Dawg Pound. Located on the second floor of Seignious Hall, the 6,000-square foot facility is the training home for the more than 350 Bulldog athletes.

Under the leadership of Donnell Boucher, one of the SoCon’s longest tenured strength coaches, The Citadel is launching a giving initiative to upgrade the current facility. With an initial $100,000 lead gift generously donated to launch this project, we now need YOUR SUPPORT to help complete the total renovation. 

Included in the upgrade are:

  • Fully customized multi-purpose racks from Sorinex
  • Performance turf flooring from PLAE
  • Intek bumper plates
  • Iron Grip dumbbells
  • Run Rockets speed trainers and Laser Timing System
  • Wenning Belt Squat
  • New signage, wall graphics and décor
  • Full office updates for six staff members

“Over the past few years, I have seen all of our opponents and rivals upgrade their weight rooms or build new ones. Our athletes here live tough and deserve to train in a first class facility! With the support of our extraordinary alumni, we can make that happen this school year. It’s time for The Dawg Pound to become the envy of The Southern Conference. Share and/or donate to help us build better Bulldogs!” – Coach D

This weight room renovation is crucial to enhancing the student-athlete experience as each of our 14 teams utilize this facility every day! We need your support to carry out Coach D's vision and goal of becoming the top program in The Southern Conference!
