Occidental athletics and its facilities are decent enough, and while they could benefit from some improvement, they are definitely nothing to scoff at. With recent remodeling and an effort to change the hours to be more accommodating, the situation appears to be improving.
The varsity sports teams are good as well. While football is the big draw, there are also many other sports to both play and watch at Oxy. Both men's and women's basketball are incredibly strong and well-performing teams every year. There is also a good variety of men's and women's sports, giving many options for those wanting to play, and each team is very well funded both from the school and from their own fundraising. Club sports are very strong, too, although they do suffer from funding troubles. The women's and men's lacrosse teams are gradually rebuilding themselves into competitive teams, only needing help to raise the money to pay for equipment and league dues. Women's rugby is also becoming a popular sport on campus as well. These teams all do fairly well during the season, but like most club sports on campus, they need more support in funding and spectators to rise up and secure themselves as strong teams.
