4 College Freshman

Athletics: Many students are involved in athletics and clubs.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not many people attend sports events.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: It really depends sport to sport, but it's not a great sports place. It's weird that this is a school that an NFL legend quarterback attended (Kenny Anderson of Bengal fame), but still the football stadium is a third full on game days and the athletic facilities are pretty sub par. For the athlete, it's a great experience, especially for cross country and track runners, where they are coached by a legend in Coach Paul Olsen, and are invited to prestigious events due to the teams' yearly success. It's mainly a "Hooray! I get to play a college sport!" sports atmosphere where the teams aren't very good, aren't very supported, but the athlete gets a great opportunity.
