GVSU recently added women's lacrosse as a varsity program that will begin play in the spring of 2012. Lubbers Stadium began a three-phase renovation during the summer of 2011 and a new outdoor track & field/lacrosse stadium is set to open in the fall of 2011. The Laker Turf Building, which opened for all university activities in August 2009, allows GVSU academic classes and athletic teams the opportunity to work inside in inclement weather. The 137,662 square foot facility has a 100 x 55-yard fieldturf surface, a six-lane track with nine sprint lanes and batting cages that drop from the ceiling. The Laker softball team began play on its new field in 2008 and the Laker baseball field added stadium seating behind home plate in 2010. GVSU expanded its football stadium seating capacity to 8,550, added executive suites and a new scoreboard with a ProStar video display board in 2002. The GVSU Football Center, located in the north end zone of Lubbers Stadium, has been expanded by more than 4,000 feet since Selgo's arrival. In addition, lights were installed at Lubbers Stadium and the Rob Odejewski Weight Room was built in honor of the late Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing and Promotions.

In addition, the fieldhouse locker room project, that enabled every varsity sport at Grand Valley State to have its own locker room, was spearheaded by Selgo.
