3 College Junior

Athletics: School sports don't seem to be a large part of campus life.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I love my school and wish i could go to more events that the school does have but it very hard to attend some events because of my school classes and work schedule

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I know there are sports within campus but I don't participate into them because I don't live in campus. But I do know there is emphasis in supporting and cheering the team.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: athletics in qc is very high standards,

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I've gone to two basketball games and it wasn't even to watch the game. It was more so to support the cheer team because I have a friend in it. There isn't much school spirit when it comes to sports.

Sports play a large part in student life on campus. Students are involved in varsity, intramural, and recreational athletics, and students in intramural sports play in the ECC, or East Coast Conference. QC participates in the NCAA and NCAA Division II. Sports offered for men are baseball, basketball, cross country, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, and track & field; for women, there's basketball, cross country, fencing, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field, and volleyball. Students who have satisfied the necessary academic requirements are eligible to participate in sports. The gym on campus consists of a really nice fitness center and several rooms in which aerobics, yoga, and other classes are offered.

Queens College was chosen to host three 2010 NCAA Division II Tennis East Regional events. The Queens College Athletic Department also sponsors frequent opportunities like the “Fall Fun Run" to encourage physical activity within the community. Queens offers sports camps and invites coaches and student athletes to help the campers learn and improve their skills in sports. The mascot of Queens College is Sir Winsalot the Knight, introduced in 2008; he appears at Knights and Lady Knights home games.
