3 College Sophomore

Athletics: My School has two building dedicated for our athletes. The bigger of the two buildings has all the facilities it needs in order to cater to all types of athletes. As far as school spirit goes, before every game the entire campus is decked out in our school colors with students and teachers wishing luck onto our players.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Albion College is not known for its sports per say. The teams are often small, but we are ranked fairly well for our division. I do not participate in sports so I cannot say much about them. However, there are a lot of athletes at Albion and they work hard.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Albion may only be a Division III school, but a large number of students come to Albion because they want to play sports. With a wide variety of teams, almost everyone has an opportunity to compete. There are 18 varsity sports offered and plenty of intramural sports available for those who want to participate. Spectators are sometimes few and far between, but those who do attend have some serious Briton pride.

Albion's athletic facilities seem to improve every year. Name a sport, and Albion has a field, diamond, track, court, or stadium for it, with a canoeing facility on top of it all. If you're an athlete, you'll feel right at home in the Dow Recreation and Wellness Center. The building includes a pool, four tennis courts, a basketball court, a track, a weight room, and a plethora of cardio machines scattered about—all indoors. The most recent pride and joy of the Albion College Athletics Department is the Nancy G. Held Equestrian Center, spanning on 340 acres of the College's land. Albion is the only private college in Michigan with an equestrian center on campus. There is not only an equestrian team that competes but also an equestrian club for those who just love horses.

School Spirit
At Albion, it sometimes seems like students are prouder of what fraternity or sorority they belong to than the school itself. Greek apparel is everywhere on campus, which makes sense as about half of the campus goes Greek. Greek Week seems to be what really gets the campus excited—although Homecoming Weekend is also a big deal on campus. Alumni return for both of these, and the campus seems much livelier during these times. No one is ashamed to go to Albion. It is a good school with a good reputation, and that sums it up.
Getting Tickets
Albion College athletic events are open to the public. Admission is charged only for football and men's basketball games.
