4 College Senior

Athletics: Basketball team is going to NCAA Division I.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are important for students because it gets them involved with the school, and it gives them a chance to experience a fun event and meet other students. Currently our school is building a new facility for our basketball and volleyball teams.

4 College Junior

Athletics: They are building a new gymnasium and it is going to be great

2 College Freshman

Athletics: If you're looking for a college with a large sports presence, this is not the school for you. The most "popular" sport on campus is basketball, but we don't even have our own basketball gym for games on campus, we have to travel to a community college for any home games (although they are in the process of building a new basketball/volleyball stadium that looks promising). The crowd at basketball games is unfortunately small, probably because of the traveling inconvenience to the community college for games. Although the athletic teams and program are not too popular, the campus spirit is surprisingly impressive. San Marcos has done a great job at growing their school spirit and extra curricular participation, it is just not up to par with other big schools.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I only use the campus gym.
