3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I personally don't pay very much to the athletics on campus.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I don't involve with sports but my friends are in a team so I guess it is popular. Each semester they have awareness for sports and they have clubs so it is popular!

2 College Senior

Athletics: We don't have many sports, and our school is not athletic-based at all. You'll often forget we have sports teams (unless you play them). We don't have a football team.

College Sophomore

Athletics: I've never been to a game so I don't know

4 College Senior

Athletics: There's a lot of spirit for our school. I don't participate in athletics, but I see the teams loading up into vans on their way to games. And we often spot our mascot lurking around campus as well as banners on what school is going up against ours. It seems like a big deal, but I'm not very involved.

Question most students at City College on how any of the sports teams are doing for the season, and they will scratch their heads and shrug their shoulders. The fact is City College isn't exactly a big athletics school. Sports are very low profile, athletes are not well known throughout campus, and no one really knows where the matches and tournaments are held. Most students do not have the time, but for those who do play sports, the athletics department is fully stocked with a gymnasium, a fitness center, an indoor track, and an indoor pool, which are open to both athletes and students.

City offers 16 varsity sports—eight for women and eight for men. Just because most students aren't hyped about sports here, that doesn't mean our teams suck. We've won many awards and have 48 CUNYAC championships since 1966. In the 2005–2006 season, CCNY earned 21 conference all-star selections.

School Spirit
Students who attend City College appreciate the opportunity that they have to gain an education-for many, they are the first to enter college in their family. Many students are immigrants, and each student is paving their own path; there is no legacy that they can fall back on.

The students at CCNY are proud of where they attend, and they show this pride by wearing clothing that shows off the striking CCNY letters.
Getting Tickets
Students don't really need to buy tickets at City. Most can attend games as they please. Since there really isn't much of an emphasis on athletics, there's bound to be more than enough room in the stands.
