Since Bryant began its four-year transition into the Division I Northeast Conference in 2007, athletics have taken on an increasingly important role on campus. This is evident in the talented student athletes that Bryant is attracting these days, as well as increasing school spirit. On one hand, Bryant has performed very well overall in comparison to other schools that have made the shift to D-I in the past. However, some teams have struggled more than others, and school spirit is not yet at the level of some of the other D-I universities in the region. Of all the varsity sports, football games typically get the highest student turnout rate (the Homecoming game is the most-attended sporting event of the year). However, students are attending basketball, soccer, and other sports in increasing numbers each year. Fans usually come decked out in the school's black and gold colors and can look forward to being pumped up by the school's mascot, Tupper the Bulldog, at all major sporting events. In addition to varsity sports, Bryant also offers intramural and club sport teams that are popular with students. Men's and women's rugby are the most popular club sports. Bryant's athletic facilities are all state-of-the-art, and the fields and courts are constantly being maintained and kept in top condition. The facilities are all very accessible and modern. In addition to the Chace Wellness Center gym, which is available to all students, student athletes also have their own gym (the Jarvis Varsity Weight Room).

School Spirit
In the fall of 2007, Bryant became a Division I school. Students love to come out and cheer on their fellow peers during athletic events, decked out in Bryant black and gold attire. It's fun for everyone to watch and see other teams you would normally see on ESPN!
