Walking Still Encouraged at SWOSU's Milam Stadium


Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s Milam Stadium on the Weatherford campus has new artificial turf, which has prompted area residents to inquire if they can still walk/exercise at the stadium.

SWOSU Athletic Director Todd Thurman said walking/running is still permitted and encouraged.

Due to the new turf, some changes have taken place, including:

*It is requested that everyone stay off the artificial turf unless permission is granted from the administration

*Pets are not allowed in the stadium

“The turf project is a big investment by the university, and we want to protect our facilities,” SWOSU President Randy Beutler said. “We know a lot of citizens like to walk at the stadium, and we want everyone to know that they are welcome to continue exercising at the stadium.”
