Athletics: It's nice having access to a gym (included in tuition) but it is rarely utilized by non-student athletes.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics is getting better each year.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I've been going here for a few years now, and I have noticed that with each academic year comes more school spirit. The campus is still young, so the community/athletics is still maturing. Sports events are a blast to go to, and I play intramural and club sports. I highly recommend students to play on a club team! It is a lot of fun, you get in shape, and I almost guarantee that you will meet some amazing people.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Sports aren't that big on campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics doesn't play too big of a role, but just like any other school sporting events are attended any victories are celebrated. Sporting facilities are readily available to students and athletes and are fairly modern, meeting the needs of students and students-athletes alike.

With the increasing student population, the athletic department on campus has started to grow. Among the sports on campus, CSUSM sustains a women's softball team, men's baseball, men's and women's track and field, and men's and women's soccer, just to name a few.

Also, ASI, or better known as Associated Students Incorporated, has many club sports where students can be involved in on-campus sports without it getting too competitive. Some of the popular club sports on campus include the surf club, golf club, or paintball club.
