4 College Junior

Athletics: For having such a small student body (450) the sports at this school play an important role at Montreat College. Almost 3/4 of students enrolled in the traditional program are involved in sports.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: A lot of people like to go to the games but since we are such a small school it isn't like everyone revolves around them.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Mens and Womens soccer is good, baseball is good, softball is good, basket ball is ok, golf is ok, volleyball is good.

1 College Junior

Athletics: We do not have athletics at this locations. I wish we did because i would love to be in a caviler uniform for basketball or another sport.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports Are There – Sports are encouraged at montreat and are supported. They are not as big as other schools though

Montreat students love a good sports game. Since Montreat is such a small, tight-knit community, students turn out for athletic events to watch their friends and classmates. Baseball, basketball, soccer, and volleyball games are arguably the most popular sporting events. Students cheer loudly for the Cavaliers, sometimes bringing signs or wearing blue and gold (the school's colors) face paint to show their school spirit. Home games are a welcome study break for many students (or a change of environment to do light homework in), and occasionally, a "special event" happens (e.g., free pizza for groups who wear face paint in the school's colors).

The College regards the sports teams highly, and they are big incentives for potential students to enroll at Montreat. Some students complain about the outdated facilities and equipment, though the school does its best to support the school athletics. In 2008, McAlister Gymnasium underwent an "extreme makeover," updating the facility quite a bit. The equipment is outdated but clean and functional; with funding issues, the school can't always buy all-new equipment. Equipment in the gym is primarily used by athletes but is open to other students, as well. Many students take advantage of the weights and other equipment in the basement of the gym. Potential students can tour the facilities and meet the coaches and team members; they also have the option to stay overnight at the College with someone on a team they want to try out for, getting first-hand knowledge of what will be expected of them when they join.

School Spirit
Shows of school spirit could always be better, but most students at Montreat try to make it to at least a few games a year, most popularly baseball, basketball, soccer, and volleyball.
Getting Tickets
Most Montreat games are free of charge. The only games that may need tickets are conference/tournament games. All other games are free; the teams appreciate the school spirit displayed by their fans!
Best Place to Take a Walk
Many students like to walk around Lake Susan, between Montreat College and the Montreat Conference Center building. Robert Lake Park is mostly shaded and contains a playground; students like to walk through the park and on nearby trails.
