2 College Freshman

Athletics: It's a D3 school so athletics are nearly nonexistent and pretty useless. The gym is kind of nice though.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I went to a football game once. It was very cold but fun.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't often go to sports events, but when I went to one of our men's basketball games, I was appalled. They were playing in a gym that was worse than my high school's gym, and they didn't even have a cheerleading team of university students.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: When fans do go to games, they are full of pride. School spirit is more abundant during football season, but I know people who go to other sports events and I have gone to some myself. The athletic facilities work well for the amount of people but in the next few years there may need to be more room.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: They are not a big part of our school but people still attend.

The Rowan Profs have found a lot of success on the athletic fields in recent years. Unfortunately, not many students seem to care or notice. All of Rowan's teams are NCAA Division III and play in the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) against teams like Kean University, Montclair State University, New Jersey City University, Ramapo College, and William Patterson University. Rowan’s biggest rival in football is The College of New Jersey, and whenever the Profs play TCNJ, it’s an anticipated game. The homecoming game also attracts a fair amount of students, parents, fans, and professors interested in cheering on the Profs.

Most varsity sports are represented at Rowan at the Division III level, but certain sports, including tennis and men’s lacrosse, do not have teams at all here. On the brighter side, there are numerous club teams that students can join, including soccer, tennis, ultimate Frisbee, and many others. Club sports require a lot of time and effort. Most teams have games, matches, and tournaments on the weekends and have practices throughout the week. If all that commitment isn't for you, intramural sports are very popular and are usually played one or two times a week.
