3 College Senior

Athletics: They are very exciting games to attend but I don't focus only on them while at school

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports at Florida College are very exciting! There is always a large crowd from the student body that attend the games!

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: They Are Great – The volleyball team and soccer team both won nationals, and the basketball team is good too

5 College Junior

Athletics: Florida College has one of the best volleyball programs in the country and have won 8 national championships in the past 11 years. the school tries to get behind every sport in order for them to make it to nationals. I am on the soccer team and we made to the national tournament last year and made it all the way to the final four. the soccer team gets a lot of fans at our games and the school is behind us all the way!

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The athletics dept. is amazing and the fans are outstanding.

Florida College offers a small variety of varsity sports—men's basketball, women's volleyball, men's and women's soccer, and men's and women's cross country. However, there is a greater variety in the intramural sports, including kickball, softball, and flag football in the fall semester and basketball, volleyball, and ultimate Frisbee in the spring.

The number of varsity sports is limited by the amount of funds available to the school, but the teams themselves do well and have won a number of national competitions. Attendance at varsity basketball and volleyball games is free to FC students, and many enjoy cheering on the Falcons and the "Amazons of Conn" at the home games held in the gym. The soccer and cross country competitions are more overlooked by the student body, as many of the events are held off campus, but students enjoy hearing of their fellow students' successes during the announcements in chapel. Intramural sports offer opportunities for the six societies to compete for school points. Anyone on a society can play, regardless of ability or experience. Participating in intramural sports is a great way to work off the stress of homework and studies, as well as an opportunity to get to know fellow students on a different level. The intramural games tend to be competitive yet friendly, with the emphasis placed more on good sportsmanship and having a good time rather than on winning every game.

School Spirit
Some students who attend Florida College do so because their parents and grandparents attended in the past, and now they are expected to do the same. However, the majority of students comes to the College to gain an education as well as a better conservative Christian perspective on life. School spirit is demonstrated through society T-shirts, school colors being worn, and in the way students talk about the school to prospective students. Students take great pride in the accomplishments of their fellow students in varsity sports, and many come to home games to cheer in the stands.
Getting Tickets
All on-campus athletic events are free to FC students.
