5 College Senior

Athletics: It was a dream of mine to participate in collegiate volleyball after graduating high school, however I received my mother's genes of being under 5' 5" and my dream was looking too bright. Even though I didn't get to pursue that dream, I love going to watch the games and see just how spirited our school is. There are the cheerleaders on the sidelines, the student section that is always rowdy, and the local regulars that wouldn't miss a game at home! Everyone is in their blue or gold and screaming their heads off for our Belle team! The C.J. Davidson center is one of the best gyms that could be played in for any type of sports event.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being a student athlete at Howard College has been great, the facilities are beyond nice and the school has taken adequate steps to ensure that all athletes at the college are able to compete at the best of their ability. With this being said I wish that facilities for non student athletes were nicer and more well taken care of.

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.
