3 College Junior

Athletics: Poor Facilities – Teams could be better if it were for better facilities, they could attract more/better student athletes. The fan support is good but could be better.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Not a Joiner, but Hear It's Good – I'm not really a participant with the athletics department, but we have several events related with sports.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Eagle Pride – Everyone gives a 110% when they are cheering on the eagles whether it is soccer, baseball, cross country, tennis, softball, basketball! We can't make every game but when we do we do our best to cheer the loudest. Facilities could be better but we are division 3 school.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Students Support the Teams. Although our school is not the best at all sports, our students are pretty good about going and supporting our teams. Chances are that you will know at least one of the players on the field.

The various types of sports available to the University of the Ozarks students are baseball, basketball, cross country, soccer, softball, and tennis. In the 1960s, the school had a football team, but it quickly faded due to the lack of interest and funds. Though the statistics of the teams from the last few years are not good, the students are always supportive, win or lose. Overall, though, academics are more important than sports in the eyes of the students.

Each team is well respected, but the cross country, soccer, and tennis teams do the best of all other sports on campus. Students, faculty, and staff are always attending the sporting events. School spirit is very prominent, and each year the University has Spirit Week. Each day of Spirit Week there is a random theme to help the University get pumped up about school pride. If students are not on a varsity team, they can always join the intramural sports teams. Some of the intramurals are the normal varsity sports, but there are also activities like bowling, badminton, and volleyball. In addition, all of the athletic facilities are clean, accessible, and very up-to-date.
