4 College Freshman

Athletics: My college has many great and accessible sports facilities that everyone that attends the college can use as long as they have their ID. The facilities are not only new but they are safe as well and the equipment is easily self understood.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Just a few years ago, we opened a brand new athletic complex. This is open for athletes and non-athletes. It is used in conjunction with the local YMCA.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The quality of coaches is sub-par, but the college makes a great effort to give large amounts of money to the athletics programs, particularly the male sports. Many female athletes complain that their programs don't receive the same kind of funding that their male counterparts do. Despite a little less than half the college participating in athletics, there is still some much needed upgrading to do, both in terms of the equipment that is available to the athletes and to the coaching staffs available.
