Campaign of Opportunities

Campaign of Opportunities

Why a Capital Campaign?

“I recently heard someone say that ‘the opportunity of a lifetime must be taken within the lifetime of the opportunity’ and that spoke to me. There are so many positive things happening at Midway and we need to invest in the institution and rally others to do the same to keep building on our current momentum.”


Since transitioning to coeducation and expanding athletic programs for both men and women, Midway University has experienced incredible growth in undergraduate enrollment.  (Read the full President’s Report 2017) Previous capital campaigns led to the construction of academic buildings that can fully support our growth.  However, a new recreation center with an auxiliary gym and fitness center is desirable for all students, and a baseball field on campus is crucial to support our new baseball team. Current facilities are sorely lacking or do not exist.

There are many opportunities for naming rights and sponsorship recognition within this campaign. Our Advancement Office Staff would also welcome the opportunity to meet with you and discuss the capital campaign. Contact Linda Medley at 859.846.5300 or email
