Room Field went under a massive renovation in 2004 that upgraded public facilities, the press box, new locker room, and also updated the stadium's capacity. Phase three increased the stadium's permanent seating capacity from 7,500 to 8,700 and was financed with a combination of public funds and private donations.
Eastern set its single season attendance record in 2011 with an average of 8,889 and currently ranks 48th in FCS and fourth in the Big Sky Conference. On February 26, 2010, ESPN reported that Eastern Washington planned to remove the natural turf at Woodward Field and replace it with red Sprinter, making it the second Division I college football program to have a non-green playing surface (Boise State of the MWC has had a blue surface since 1986).
A funding drive was begun in late January 2010, with EU alumnus Michael Room donating $500,000 toward the installation costs, and fellow alumnus and Fox Sports personality Colin Cowherd also making a donation. On May 20, the Eastern Washington Board of Trustees approved a name change to Room Field upon the successful completion of the project.
The field is aligned nearly north-south, offset slightly to the northwest, at an approximate elevation of 2,450 feet (745 m) above sea level. In June 2012, it was announced that a state-of-the-art video scoreboard would be installed in time for the first home game of the 2012 season on September 29.
A feasibility study is currently underway that would identify revenue streams and measure costs, which have been estimated to be $20 million or more. In November 2012, it was announced that the project envisions adding several thousand seats at Room Field, boosting capacity beyond 18,000.
Other amenities include athletic facilities, band locker rooms, offices, and retail space. The Education Teacher Performance Assessment (EDTA) is a standards-based measurement of pedagogy knowledge, efficacy of instruction and skills in the field.
Administered during a candidate’s field experience, the EDTA requires the assembly of a portfolio including written documents, video clips of classroom instruction, samples of P-12 student work and personal reflections on the field experience. Ability to normatively assess and make adjustments based upon student needs.
Justification of pedagogy, including commentaries which describe theory, conceptual and practical knowledge, and application of strategy. Plans based on content knowledge of students’ academic, emotional development, language, prior learning, lived experience, family, community and cultural assets.
While most of the EasternWashingtonUniversity campus is quiet during the summer break, something exciting is happening over at Room Field. You’ll surly notice the bright pop of red the next time you drive along Washington Street.
The original red turf reached its max lifespan of ten years last season and required replacement. In addition to giving people a chance to pick the new design, each vote helped Eastern raise $9,336 for student-athlete scholarships.
The winning field features a newly updated design with end zones that spell out Eastern on one side and “Eagles” on the other. Considered one of the most versatile athletes of modern sports, Jim Thorpe won Olympic gold medals in the pentathlon and decathlon.

Researchers share crop production advances at the Wilde Farm Field Day, set for June 26 near Davenport, Wash. Experts from Washington State University and the University of Idaho will share the latest advances in crop production and disease protection for eastern Washington at the Wilde Farm Field Day, Tuesday, June 26. Held at the Wilde Research and Extension Farm near Davenport, Wash., the field day and tour helps growers learn about the latest wheat breeding efforts for Washington’s intermediate rainfall zone, and techniques to protect against low falling number, Hessian fly, and stripe rust.
Growers will also meet André Wright, new dean of WSU’s College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences (CARS). WSU experts will share the latest technology to manage and monitor protein, helping farmers fine-tune their fertilizer practices and get the most out of their fields.
The new building was funded by siblings Carol Quite and Jerry Sheffield, longtime WSU and Wilde Farm supporters. “It gives us a space where we can secure everything at Wilde Farm, saving a lot of time and effort that can now be directed back into research,” Lesser said.
For more than 20 years, he has researched ways to help animals use nutrients more efficiently, reduce methane, and increase food production, sustainably.
