Athletics: I live near the rec center and it's an easy walk to get to and work out!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm new to the campus and haven't had much time to explore, but the athletic facilities are fantastic and there is a lot of spirit across campus and throughout the town for our sports teams!

5 College Freshman

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Big on football. Facilities are good. Wide variety of differing sports for students.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not apart of athletics on campus, but I attended every football game as well as several basketball and baseball games. It's incredible to see how quickly the stands fill up at our games. I lived in a dorm off of the parking lot of the football stadium, and every game day was an incredible experience. Parents and alumni come to tailgate hours before the game and fill the lot with a sea of gold and black. They know the chants and the songs, and offer their food to the students passing by. The student section was full at every game - sun, rain and snow alike. Club sports and intramurals have schedules that work with nearly everyone and have great support on campus.
