Packard Athletic Center

Packard Athletic Center

The Packard Athletic Center or fondly known as the "PAC" is named in honor of former Baldwin Wallace University Head Football Coach and professor Robert "Bob" Packard '65.  The facility which opened in the summer of 2013 is a training facility for varsity athletics as well as home to the BW football and lacrosse coaching staffs.

Bob Packard is the winningest football coach in the history of the University with 156 career victories, but more importantly was responsible for teaching and changing the lives of his student-athletes in the classroom, on the football field and on campus. In 38 years a BW student-athlete, assistant coach and head coach, Bob never experienced a losing season. Coach Packard passed away in October of 2007. 

In the summer of 2018, the University broke ground on the Packard Center Field, which at one time was the home to the National Football Leagues's Cleveland Browns Training Complex. The grass field was replaced with an AstroTurf surface and lighting was added to create the new training home for Yellow Jacket men's and women's soccer and men's and women's lacrosse.

The PAC is located at 123 East Bagley Road next to The George Finnie Stadium and behind the Kleist Center for Art and Drama.
