3 College Junior

Athletics: I am a member of the Stadium Band and many students have a lot of spirit but many others do not. I feel like it is pretty divided in that aspect. Our sports teams do very well and give us good reason to be proud but not a whole lot of people pay attention.

College Junior

Athletics: I can't really rate that because I don't participate in that part of campus life, so I don't know much about it.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am an athlete there is a good base of support for sports in playoffs and championships but not that much for regular games.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I dont do them because im lazy but some of my friends do and they like them.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There are a lot of students involved in varsity and intramural sports, but I don't see athletic life as having a large presence at the school. I think because our school is so small there isn't that much school spirit.

The team on campus that receives the most attention is undoubtedly the football team, even though other teams have far better records. Some teams get less attention than others, particularly the golf and swimming teams. All the teams are very dedicated and have high levels of team spirit. They take their sports very seriously and obey the 48-hour rule that says that team members cannot drink within 48 hours of a meet or game. The turnout to many matches, meets, and games is pretty low when compared to the size of the student body. Many fans are supportive in a subdued sort of way, but there are always a few people in crowds (possibly fueled by alcohol) who have enough enthusiasm for everyone else.

The intramural leagues are popular; teams are made up of groups of friends or campus organizations such as fraternities or sororities. The intramural sports range from flag football to volleyball, and are a lot of fun to watch and participate in. Sports that have the title “club” instead of “team” are also popular on campus, the most popular being crew (both men’s and women’s), rugby (men’s and women’s), and ultimate Frisbee. However, just because these sports have club status, it does not mean they are any less formidable. The women’s rugby team is particularly talented.

School Spirit
The school spirit isn't really overwhelming. If you want to go for a school that has crazy, passionate fans, this is not the place. As someone stated in the Athletics Section, "fairweather fans" is an ideal term to describe the spirit at SU.
Getting Tickets
Tickets are not necessary to attend games unless it is a special event like a conference meet or tournament.
Best Place to Take a Walk
The whole campus is very attractive, but it is also nice to walk through town and then walk down by the Susquehanna River.
