3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being a full time student in the nursing program i don't have enough time to participate in sports because of clinical hours so I'm not that familiar with the athletics at my school

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The main field is kind of crowded because it's shared between men's and women's soccer and lacrosse.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's a liberal arts school. Sports don't play a big role.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletic support isn't that big, but the school has a great outdoor rec program and a climbing wall.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am sure they are doing a great job and all that, but we have a big lack of school spirit on campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Traditional sports—such as football, soccer, and lacrosse—do not have a huge presence on Westminster's campus. There is no football team at all. The soccer teams are all right, but not many people attend their games—which can nearly be said about all of the sports teams at Westminster.

The basketball teams have been excellent in the past, and sometimes they muster tons of support. Skiing and snowboarding are the most active sports, with most students participating in them. The skiing and snowboarding teams have attended national competitions in the past, too. A lot of people do sports, but unless you play one, hardly any attention is paid to athletics on campus.

Most Popular Sports
The most popular sports are probably skiing, snowboarding, and men's lacrosse.
Most Overlooked Teams
Most teams are overlooked. The cross country, track, women's soccer and lacrosse, and basketball teams are all pretty much overlooked.
School Spirit
The school's cheering section is called "The Nest." It has been popular in past years, but recently it has been dwindling in support.
Getting Tickets
Tickets do not have to be bought in advance; it is very easy to be admitted to all sporting events.
Best Place to Take a Walk
The campus has a beautiful creek corridor that has a lovely walking path. The path takes you past some native gardens and along the babbling brook.
Did You Know?
A lot of students from Westminster make it on the national ski team-some have even participated in the Olympics!
