4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The sports are a big part of school life.

3 College Senior

Athletics: We're a D3 school so our academics will always be more important than our athletics, but I still try to find time to go and cheer for our players. Not many people can go to games with our different schedules, but a good number always shows up. My school just recently remodeled the fitness center as well, so that's a major improvement that benefits non-athletes as well.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The fitness is currently being redone. Cedar Crest ensures that the students and athletes are happy at their home away from home.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The gym and pool are almost always open, and I think they are the best thing about the campus. They hold a lot of fitness challenges and events for everyone to continue to stay active.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There is a lot of school spirit both on and off campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Cedar Crest's athletic program is a great part of the experience at the College. The Cedar Crest Falcons are associated with NCAA Division III and the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC). Students can participate in eight intercollegiate varsity sports: basketball, cross country, field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball. Cedar Crest also has an equestrian team as a club sport.

Even if you don't play a sport, you will probably know someone who does! Attending games with friends is a fun way to support the College, and there is always a sport in season for you to cheer on!

Most Popular Sports
Basketball and field hockey are the most popular sports on campus.
Most Overlooked Teams
Cross country, lacrosse, and volleyball are the most overlooked teams on campus.
School Spirit
Students are aware of the games coming up, but perhaps because many games are off campus, the College community often isn't involved in athletic events.
Best Place to Take a Walk
The campus is a nationally registered arboretum, so in the fall and spring, it's great to just walk around and enjoy the landscape. If you want a change of scenery, there is also a public park right next to campus.
Did You Know?
Every spring, the residence halls participate in the "Hall Olympics," where students compete in fun and nontraditional athletic events.
