Brandenburg Stadium was built between 1922 and 1924 in an unique way. It was against state law for a legislature to fund building of recreational centers, but they could fund recreation and athletic fields, so in 1917 a small appropriation of $1500 was made for the grounds of a new facility. To get the needed financing, funds were raised by the students, alumni and friends of the college. To help defray the cost of building the new facility, each male faculty member was required to put in a mandatory eights hours of labor in helping build the stadium. It was dedicated on Armistice Day, 1924 and named after the first and longest serving President of the college, William Aaron Brandenburg. On the front of the columns of the stadium are bas reliefs done by Waylande Gregory, graduate of College High School.
