Jackson Field

Located across Wyllys Avenue from Andrus Field, Jackson Field has been the primary varsity playing field for men's and women's soccer as well as men's and women's lacrosse since the late 1970s. Women's lacrosse, however, relocated to Smith Field, the University artificial surfaced facility in 2007.  A picturesque setting for any athletic contest, Jackson Field is bordered by the 11-building Center for the Arts and is adjacent to the Stewart M. Reid House, which houses the college's admissions office. Called North Field for many years, the field was renamed Jackson Field at a dedication ceremony on October 21, 2006, to honor longtime men's soccer and lacrosse coach Terry Jackson, who retired in 1998 after more than 30 years at the University.  Jackson is a member of Wesleyan's fourth induction class for its Athletics Hall of Fame.
