3 College Sophomore

Athletics: we are a division 3 school, sports isnt a huge thing here

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I do not compete on a varsity athletic team at school, but I make a point of attending as many of the varsity games as I can and I participate in intramural sports. Christopher Newport University does an excellent job of putting enough funding into athletic facilities for varsity teams to show its competitive spirit, and they also put enough money into the facilities used by individuals wanting to stay in shape but do not compete on a varsity sports team to demonstrate that physical fitness for all college students is a top priority.

College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not that into sports so I can't really give an opinion one way or another

3 College Junior

Athletics: The football games are fun but the tailgates are even better.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: When it comes to football there is a pretty good outcome to games unless it is raining. Other sports less so, such as lacrosse and hockey. Volleyball is also a big sport here because of how well our volleyball team does.
