2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not many people care enough

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: the athletics department of Cedar Crest is great. Everyone is usually involved and attends all of the meets. The facility is great as well.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I honestly do not know, I am not a traditional student and do not pay attention the activities like sports on campus. Every once in a while I'll hear someone talking about a game but it is definitely a big deal.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't go to sporting events

3 College Junior

Athletics: We are 3rd dividion so our teams are a bit mediocre.

Cedar Crest's athletic program is a great part of the experience at the College. The Cedar Crest Falcons are associated with NCAA Division III and the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC). Students can participate in eight intercollegiate varsity sports: basketball, cross country, field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball. Cedar Crest also has an equestrian team as a club sport.

Even if you don't play a sport, you will probably know someone who does! Attending games with friends is a fun way to support the College, and there is always a sport in season for you to cheer on!

Most Popular Sports
Basketball and field hockey are the most popular sports on campus.
Most Overlooked Teams
Cross country, lacrosse, and volleyball are the most overlooked teams on campus.
School Spirit
Students are aware of the games coming up, but perhaps because many games are off campus, the College community often isn't involved in athletic events.
Best Place to Take a Walk
The campus is a nationally registered arboretum, so in the fall and spring, it's great to just walk around and enjoy the landscape. If you want a change of scenery, there is also a public park right next to campus.
Did You Know?
Every spring, the residence halls participate in the "Hall Olympics," where students compete in fun and nontraditional athletic events.
