Biola boasts a rather swell athletics program. Sports aren't generally stressed at Biola, but the ones that are very popular among students include baseball, basketball, and soccer. Each one has its own large following and has garnered lots of respect over the years. In fact, some Biolan baseball players have been drafted into Major League Baseball. Although you have to look for it, many students express school spirit whenever a rival school is in town. The matches are always held in a polite manner, and there have been no outrageous occurrences of students acting out during the games.
Although Biola isn't very well-known for its athletics, the University does boast quite a few, with the sole exception of football for funding reasons. Intramural sports are probably more well-known among students because more people can get involved—no matter what their skills may be like. Everything is handled in an orderly manner, and everyone has great sportsmanship in carrying out the games. The facilities may appear to be a bit older, but all athletic facilities are up to snuff and provide a sufficient training ground for athletes and students alike. The track field is actually quite new and has been praised by students and faculty alike for its quality.
