5 College Junior

Athletics: Sporting events on campus are awesome. More than half of the students show up to any kind of sporting event and everyone shows a great amount of school spirit. It's very easy to get involved at the games and a lot of the students do. The gymnasium and football field are extremely nice and our students are proud of them and keep them clean.

Compared to other colleges, sporting events at Lock Haven are nothing special. Not many students attend, so school spirit is nonexistent and could use a lot of improvement. There are two Division I teams: women’s field hockey and men’s wrestling. The NCAA Division II women’s softball team won national championships in 2006 and 2009, respectively, but the football team hasn’t won a game in years. On the other hand, club sports are very popular, and many students get involved with them, making T-shirts and showing up for the events. You will find more students talking about intramural games than the varsity ones. 

The well-maintained and clean Lock Haven facilities allow athletes and nonathletes alike to maximize their training and get the best possible results. The football field is located at the top of a hill and has a gorgeous view of Lock Haven. It’s a hike to get to the top, but when one reaches it, the view is picturesque. The gym at Lock Haven is very up-to-date and packed. There is a rock-climbing wall, a lifting room, a track, three basketball courts, racquetball, aerobics rooms, and a sauna. Overall, the gym facility is the place to be and to socialize.

Getting Tickets
Tickets aren't a factor at Lock Haven. Every game is free to all.
Best Place to Take a Walk
