The MU sports program is a well-known and respected program. The football games bring out many fans, especially during Homecoming. Football games are usually packed, and tailgating starts early and ends late into the night. Traffic is the only problem during football months. School spirit is very high during football season. Most students are pure Tigers at heart; many alumni come back every weekend for the games. Students are proud of their teams and what they accomplish. In recent years, basketball has not been as prominent, but students still support their basketball team.
The intramural and club sports are popular. The recreation center provides sign-ups for intramural volleyball, basketball, Frisbee, soccer, and flag football. The only issue you might have is finding people to play and show up at the designated game times. Students have a lot of fun with these sports and make new friends. The athletic facilities are very clean and up-to-date.
