5 College Sophomore

Athletics: With our campus Master Plan being updated for next year, Alico Arena is going to be looked at for a possible expansion within the next two-to-three years. Thanks to "Dunk City" in 2013, our campus has embraced the energy that surrounded our run to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament. That has transferred to having a pool built in South Village with "Dunk City" surrounding the custom pool. We're about to get a Track build in our soccer stadium, so it'll be exciting for some of my friends, because then they'll be able to compete with our other members in the Atlantic Sun conference.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Although we don't have a football team, our basketball team is well known (Dunk City is everywhere on campus). Basketball however is generally the only sport that receives a lot of attention and support from students.

Being that the University is small, students do not have many sports at the school. The sports that do exist have many loyal supporters, though. Students believe that there should be more notification about days and times for the events. Some students live off campus and feel like they are never informed about games. They only find out about athletic events when they come through the main entrance to FGCU and see the signs. Since the school is not large, FGCU does not have a football team. The big sports at the school are hockey and baseball.

Lack of notification about games is probably the biggest problem with athletics. The athletics department has been trying by sending out fliers with dates and times about the games, but for certain sports, there's no notification at all. If there were more notification, then there would probably be more people in the stands and more support from the student body. The school is newer, so there are still changes and adjustments that need to be made in the future.

School Spirit
Even though the University doesn't have a football team, students do have lots of school spirit. They would probably have more if the school advertised more about athletic events.
Getting Tickets
For most of the sports events, students with a student ID get in for free, which helps a lot.
