4 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym on campus is amazing! The equipment is in good shape, there is a pool, a yoga classroom, a rock climbing wall, and a sports gym.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I don't play sports much; I run. Still, I can't help but get excited when basketball games are going on and everyone's painted and chanting in unison contagiously. The same goes for football, even more so for intramural sports like soccer and vollyball, as that's us, the students competing with and against friends and enemies on our own terms and good spirit.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Football team is bad but think they are cool, track and field are really good, softball and baseball are fun to watch, and volleyball team is really good.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone keeps in relatively good shape and the facilities are well taken care of, which shows on the physical quality of the students.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There is not a LOT of school spirit, but the games are always fun to attend. Basketballs games are typically the most spirited. The CHP (Center for Human Performance) is the gym and it is very nice. Rock climbing and four full court basketball courts, along with plenty of exercise equipment. Also, there is a disc golf course around campus.

Angelo State University boasts quite a few championships in NCAA Division II. Almost all of the University teams have a recent championship, and each team takes its turn having a rocky season. Support for the games is moderate. The students do not get as hyped up as the big schools' students do, but the support is there. Also, many alumni still come and support their alma mater well into their old age. To show support, students wear blue on Fridays (called True Blue Friday), and the band plays the fight song in the University Center, similar to a high school pep rally.

Intramural sports are a big deal at ASU. A good percentage of students participate in at least one sport a year, and many compete in three to five. Flag football seems to be the most popular intramural sport, but basketball and softball have a large participation pool also. Angelo State takes pride in its facilities, with a newly renovated Center for Human Performance (CHP). The CHP boasts four basketball/volleyball courts, an Olympic-size swimming pool, an indoor track, an indoor climbing wall, racquetball courts, and all the workout equipment a student could possibly need, including stationary machines and free weights. The facility is clean and popular, as it is free to students. Angelo State also has tennis courts, sand volleyball, and the Pavilion basketball courts for student use.
