5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The campus athletics are great.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports aren't that big on campus. Students attend them, but there is no real hype over them.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have a good impression of the athletics. Being an athlete, I am impressed by how nice and new the facilities are.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football games aren't really important to students at SIU- nor basketball. Baseball has a decent turn out though

4 College Junior

Athletics: I don't participate in athletics besides going to the gym. Even though I pay with tuition to get into all the home games for free, I don't have the time to get away from my studies to get involved with sports or clubs.
