2 College Freshman

Athletics: The weight room is nothing more than a garage looking gym with weights in it. However, athletics itself is a huge factor at the school, but are students before athletes.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics for me is a big part of McMurry. Although there is a track, wellness center, pool, and weight room, I feel there could be a wider variety of equipment and space. But none-the less, I also believe it is enough for the athletes and non-athletes and the students involved, school spirit, and fan support is good.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: there is not much fan support. Some of the sports teams do well but we are known mostly for our track team. School spirit is hard to come by.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not a lot of people attend the sporting events.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics seems to be a big part of McMurry. I have recieved several emails about being able to get shirts for game days, discounted. Also so far I have seen other students having to ge their teachers to sign forms ahead of time about what days they will be missing. And it is only the 3rd week of school and I saw people having to get progress reports already.
