3 College Junior

Athletics: Broomball. That's what really matters. Soccer and Skiing are fun, but only broomball draws the full attention of the student body.

Athletics: Not Much – If you're into athletics you shouldn't come here. You can start any kind of club you want but there is no competition.

Athletics: Sports? What sports? We have broomball. We do have sports, but they're more of a students playing for fun thing, as opposed to a playing for scholarships thing.

Niche User

Athletics: Ha ha! Seriously, though, if competitive athletics are your thing, Marlboro may not be the place for you. We have a soccer team composed of students and professors that has won about two games in the last 10 years. We do have an active fencing community, though.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Apart from watching the "big game" as a joke at a local bar, sports are as laughable to Marlboro students as Botox injections. They're just not interested. But when it comes to competition and athleticism, Marlboro certainly has its share. Marlboro is more inwardly focused when it comes to physical competition. There's Dodgeball every Friday, the occasional basketball scrimmage, Renaissance fencing, and Frisbee and four square after dinner. These activities would be the end-of-the-week highlights if Marlboro were on ESPN.

There are two sports students take seriously, though they may play them "Marlboro style." The first is soccer. The team is an informal but rigorous group that meets twice a week to practice for weekend games. The second sport, Marlboro's "real" sport, is broomball. Each February, about 11 teams are created with one goal in mind: to compete for the trophy in the Marlboro Cup. Hilariously, faculty, staff, and students come together to form what they think will be the winning team. They come up with a clever name, a team uniform, and a winning strategy. The Marlboro Cup is a two-day event where a frozen pond on campus is used as the ice rink for the battle of the century. It's a wild event that has everyone gossiping and cheering. If you seek varsity football, Marlboro is not your place. But if it's fun, friendly sportage you're looking for, Marlboro has sure got it.

School Spirit
Marlboro's spirit could be thought of as its support for the community government. Because we are a self-governing community, our town meetings and constitution are extremely important to us. Most students care about these aspects of their education because they affect them directly. Though many students do not regularly attend Town Meeting, they certainly are concerned about the well-being of our community.
