Athletics: the athletics are okay no one really cares for them, students go to the games but really aren't into it. fans don't really exist here they're just there to watch no one really cheers or gets involved in cheers the cheerleaders provide very boring. the football team is pretty good they can put on a show . NO SCHOOL SPIRIT WHAT SO EVER!

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The very first home game was decent considering they just received a new football stadium as well as new football uniforms.

3 College Senior

3 College Junior

Athletics: I think that the football team is okay, but other sports are better, as far as actually winning a game goes.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Angelo State University boasts quite a few championships in NCAA Division II. Almost all of the University teams have a recent championship, and each team takes its turn having a rocky season. Support for the games is moderate. The students do not get as hyped up as the big schools' students do, but the support is there. Also, many alumni still come and support their alma mater well into their old age. To show support, students wear blue on Fridays (called True Blue Friday), and the band plays the fight song in the University Center, similar to a high school pep rally.

Intramural sports are a big deal at ASU. A good percentage of students participate in at least one sport a year, and many compete in three to five. Flag football seems to be the most popular intramural sport, but basketball and softball have a large participation pool also. Angelo State takes pride in its facilities, with a newly renovated Center for Human Performance (CHP). The CHP boasts four basketball/volleyball courts, an Olympic-size swimming pool, an indoor track, an indoor climbing wall, racquetball courts, and all the workout equipment a student could possibly need, including stationary machines and free weights. The facility is clean and popular, as it is free to students. Angelo State also has tennis courts, sand volleyball, and the Pavilion basketball courts for student use.
