5 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not involved in Varsity sports, but they are a big part of student life at LRU. This year the football team finished second in the NCAA DII football championships, so we have a good football team. I am involved in intramural on the Ultimate Frisbee team "Los Osos" we competed in a tournament held at Appalachian State this year, and did fairly well.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Almost everybody is playing a sport so it is a really big part of campus. You have support from the community and churches around the campus.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not many current college students get excited about the games. There aren't any pep rallies to get students hype, we had our first pep rally this year and it wasn't too great of a turn out.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Even though I haven't seen the spring sports yet. Our football team is doing great and already has a ring! For a D2 school we have roughly 8,000 people at all the home games.
