The Shirk Center Fort Natatorium

Fort Natatorium is home to the IWU men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams. The $3 million Fort Natatorium was opened in February 1988, named in honor of Illinois Wesleyan University benefactors and alumni James Madison Fort and his children, Arthur C. Fort and Clara E. Fort. In 1866, James Fort attended IWU's preparatory school and developed a life-long love for his alma mater. Judge Arthur C. Fort was a member of the class of 1897 while Clara Fort was a member of the class of 1903. In addition to an L-shaped, eight-lane, 25-yard swimming pool, the Natatorium provides indirect lighting, an above- and below-surface sound system, dehumidified air and Tarn Pure (non chlorine) purified water. Other features include ceramic tile, waveless gutters, full Colorado IV timing system with an 11-line scoreboard, wall mounted surgical tubing for dryland training, in-deck water polo goals, a wet classroom with audio-visual equipment, and seating for 250 spectators. Fort Natatorium received a roughly $2 million renovation in 2016, which included the installation of state-of-the-art dehumidification and water filtration systems.

Wilder Field at Tucci Stadium

Tucci Stadium is home to the IWU football and lacrosse teams, as well as track and field.

The Illinois Wesleyan football stadium was named Tucci (pronounced Toochee) Stadium prior to the Titans' 2011 home opener against Hope (Sept. 3).

The stadium is named in honor of University alumnus and benefactor Byron Tucci, whose gift allowed for the installation of a synthetic playing surface on the field, the fifth oldest NCAA football field in the country.

Tucci Stadium, built on the site of Wilder Field, has been used for University athletic contests for over 117 years. The new artificial turf field allows for practice for not only football but soccer, lacrosse, preseason softball and baseball and intramural activities as well. Local groups will also have an opportunity to take advantage of the new field, making it another community resource, much like the Shirk Center. 48
