In the spring of 1998, the Donald McNeely Spectrum opened as an outstanding addition to the Warner Palaestra and Clemens Stadium. The 60,000 square foot Spectrum field house, designed by Ellerbe Becket Architects, features the University's eight-lane indoor 200-meter track, five indoor tennis courts and facilities for golf and baseball practices. The Spectrum and the Palaestra bustle with varsity, intramural and club sports activities throughout the academic year.
More than ninety percent of the Saint John's University students participate in varsity, intramural and/or club sports. In addition to the varsity baseball, football and soccer fields, the campus includes 10 acres of fields dedicated to intramural and club sports.
