Misericordia football has been "undefeated since 1924." Really—it has (since there is no football team). However, in the upcoming years, everything will change. Misericordia has added football to the list of athletics, and the campus is up in arms. Most are celebrating, while some don’t like the new changes that are in store. Either way, football has certainly shaken things up in the athletic department. In terms of other sports, the athletic teams are definitely well respected. Because Misericordia concentrates on academics, though, student athletes have to work twice as hard to get good grades, dealing with a workout schedule and daily practices on top of schoolwork.
The workout facilities were recently renovated with brand-new, up-to-date, workout equipment. The fully-loaded gym has everything from treadmills to Bowflexes and is a popular spot for students at all times of the day. In fact, if students had to choose to enter the Anderson Sports-Health Center for the gym or to watch a game, most would choose the gym. Many would also choose to participate in intramurals, another popular feature on campus. Students who don't play sports find this a good way to keep in shape. There are different intramurals for every season, and they usually get quite the crowd.
