Athletics at La Roche are not well followed by the majority of the student body. Although the College offers a variety of varsity sports, most students can't seem to be bothered with attending games and other events. The lack of fans is unfortunate for the athletes, who get little or no support at their games. On average, there are only a handful of students in attendance at sporting events on campus. However, students who do attend games usually have a good time. Admission is free, and the most of the teams are pretty good.
At basketball games, students are encouraged to sit in the "Hawk's Nest," the student cheering section, but most of the cheering is done by the cheerleaders. In general, the College has very little school spirit. This could be because there isn't a football team at La Roche, which is frowned upon in a city where football is the most prevalent sport. Or perhaps it is because there is little or no advertisement of the sporting events on campus. Or maybe it's just because La Roche is a small school, and the games are never televised or considered high in rank. Since La Roche is an artsy school, most students who have an interest in sports actually play the sports they like, leaving plenty of room in the stands. Whatever the reason, the athletics here are lacking in number and fans.
