Student Author OverviewWhat's This?
Stetson really cares about its athletics, especially basketball. During the season, students can check out games and become involved. But not all sports share the same support. For the most part, only certain sports get attention. Other sports teams—such as crew, tennis, and soccer—receive less funding and support. The good thing about the athletics here, however, is that the teams themselves share a lot of pride. With that pride, there is a good amount of sports to choose from if someone wanted to join or just be a spectator.
As a student, the amount of involvement in athletics is entirely up to you. At times it's difficult to find time to support teams due to classwork, work itself, and any involvement in clubs or Greek life. Occasionally, there will be a big push for games, and the University will manage to pull in thousands of people to the event. But this is a once-a-year event, not an everyday occurrence. In terms of athletic facilities, the fields and courts are well maintained. There is almost always someone on the soccer fields whether they are just tossing a ball around or practicing for a game. The facilities also keep hours that mesh well with students' schedules, which allows them to workout outside of the team practices.
