CASSELL COLISEUM ENHANCEMENT WHILE LOOKING TO THE FUTURE THE PRESERVING TRADITION THE NEW WEST Fans visiting Cassell will continue to utilize the West Entrance as primary access, entering the updated facility from Beamer Way and the adjacent parking lots. From the outside, the glass-walled entrance will give our visitors a view into the gameday activity, greeting and welcoming fans as they enter Cassell. The renovated entryway will receive an aesthetic update in landscaping and structurally, while also visually blending in with the rest of the athletic facilities. Functionally, a new ramp system will be added to serve our fans, giving our ADA patrons a more accessible path into Cassell. Most of our teams who utilize Cassell Coliseum compete within the winter months and with an expansion of the concourse space toward Beamer Way, fans attending those events will be able to get out of the elements as they wait to enter the arena. Hokie Nation consistently shows up to support all of our Hokies, and this part of the renovation will provide comfort and convenience for all of our visiting fans. 16 Inside Hokie Sports
