3 College Junior

Athletics: A lot of School Spirit

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: We have some great sports teams that go far in competition. But athletics are largely overshadowed by Greek Life on campus. Because the sororities and fraternities are often on campus advertising bake sales and events, you don't hear or see much of the athletic teams. Attendance to sporting events is greater than average, even to intramurals. If you talk to a gentleman in a particular sport, their brotherhood strongly shows. However, they are not as widely recognized and looked up to as those in Greek Life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being an athlete on a club team, I can say that some of the fields and the track need to be updated, but the gyms are great.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are big and are important in Salisbury, but sometimes they seem kind of hidden and not as advertised as they should be. Sometimes you don't realize what's going on in the athletic events in school.

It is very clear when you step into Sea Gull territory that athletics play a big role in the lives of students. For varsity sports, lacrosse and field hockey are certainly some of the biggest draws, as they are national champions in their respective leagues. However, football and soccer are also popular and draw spirited crowds during the season. For students who do not make the varsity teams, there is a strong intramural spirit. No matter the sport, there is certainly no lack of teams to participate in the tournaments that take place. Soccer, softball, and flag football are perhaps the most popular, but any of the intramural sports are competitive. The biggest benefits of the intramural program include the ability to get exercise and meet many new people.

The passion for sports is never in short supply on campus and neither is school spirit. Whenever a home game is played, students pack the stands in support of the Sea Gulls and cheer on the athletes to do their best. The superfans can be easily spotted by the red, white, and yellow body paint they proudly display. In short, whether varsity or intramural or even just matches among friends, athletics are held near and dear at SU.

School Spirit
Athletics are a big part of campus life, but the events are not always well attended. However, when fans come out to support their teams, they are loud and proud. On many occasions, superfans come out with team colors and names painted on their bodies. These are perhaps the loudest fans of all.
Getting Tickets
Tickets for football and lacrosse may be purchased at the Sea Gull Stadium booth. Tickets for basketball may be purchased in the lobby of Maggs. In both cases, unless the match is particularly popular, the wait time is short. Tickets are reasonably priced, with $5 for general admission, $3 for non-SU students and SU alumni, $2 for kids ages 5 through 12, and free to all kids under 5, as well as to students and faculty.
Best Place to Take a Walk
Riverwalk Park, Salisbury City Park, around campus, athletic fields
