5 College Senior

Athletics: I follow the sports online. Liberty does very well.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I havent used many of the facilities but i have had a great experience when i do utilize the facilities

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have 20+ sports teams, including 3 hockey teams, 2 soccer teams, 2 lacrosse teams, and a paintball team. However, they all pale in comparison to football. As much as everyone on campus loves the football team, you'd think it was against the rules not to. Football is the main sport on campus: on game days, every hot spot on campus is nearly deserted--everyone's at the football games. It's tradition to wear as much red (school color) as possible on the Fridays before home games, and everyone who attends the games on Saturdays wears red. The next Monday, it's hard to find a student who wasn't at the game. Baseball's big late in the spring semester, and hockey's big before baseball starts.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have a huge school spirit when it comes to sports, especially Ice Hockey, Football, Baseball, and Basketball. I love that there are so many fan support no matter the sport; it shows that we have our athletes back, and are for them.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The atmosphere is amazing at the athletic events. Sometimes student support for teams can be sparse, but when the team is doing well, then the students will show up in early, wearing red, and being loud. Everybody goes to the football games. More than half the teams at Liberty usually compete well enough to win conference championships every year and advance to NCAA tournaments. It's AWESOME!
