New Mexico State University will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony this weekend for Club 27, NMSU’s new skybox at Aggie Memorial Stadium. The event will take place at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, and will coincide with the NMSU Homecoming football game.

Club 27 is funded exclusively through private donations, including $1 million from Stan Fulton, owner of the Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino, and an additional contribution from Citizens Bank of Las Cruces.

The facility is approximately 2,000 square feet, including an exterior terrace, and was constructed on the east side of Aggie Memorial Stadium. The facility provides space for the university to entertain visiting university presidents and other guests.

Earlier this week, NMSU Regents approved naming the skybox Club 27. It had previously been known as just the presidential skybox. The new name acknowledges NMSU President Garrey Carruthers who served as the 27th governor of New Mexico and the 27th president of NMSU.
