Varsity sports are not as big as they would be at Colorado University in Boulder. It is fun to attend an event with friends and cheer on the home team though! I enjoy going to the basketball games because of the atmosphere and watching the boys or girls try their hardest. It is also enjoyable when our team is winning, as it would be for any other team as well! The student section does not really beat that of Boulder or Fort Collins. For me personally I enjoy the small feel of the sport part of college and honestly don't have any complaints!

Adams State has awesome facilities for every sport. We have a weight room for athletes that could compete with any weight room in the country! Football has a knew stadium, there is a new pool, we have a pressurized bubble for track athletes to simulate competing at different altitudes. Sports are very important on campus and the school administrators recognize that.

Living in the dorms this year was nice. I enjoyed the responsibility that came along with living here as well, all part of growing up and becoming an adult. It was also nice being invited to the activities and being close to them, being in the lobby, they were a great way to get to know more people and be with good company doing something other than partying on a Friday night!
