3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not very involved in the athletics scene. Most people do enjoy sports on campus.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic fields are great. However, the locker rooms and weight rooms are terrible.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: They are good! I do not participate in them, but fun events to attend.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: Team performance is usually subpar. The most popular and usually the best teams are field hockey, girls soccer, and girls lacrosse. The school's spirit is atrocious. Almost no one goes to the football games, even on homecoming. Athletic facilities are poor. The school's physical enhancement center is a joke. Everything is broken or falling apart and the gym is so small, it's often hard to find a spot to work out.
