4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our athletics are very supportive of every varsity and intramural sports. Our varsity sports have the top facilities to practice in but the average student also has top facilities to practice in as well. We are supportive as a group and go to almost every game.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are a decent part of the campus life if you yourself get involved by going to games and being apart of them yourselves.

Athletics: I am not a sports fan although I support the team

3 College Junior

Athletics: Football always has a great turn-out and fan support, but that is partially because they have won the RMAC Championship five years in a row, and won the NCAA Division II Championship in 2014. They're good! They have by far the best facilities, and other programs get their hand-me-downs.

Everyone else has decent fan support depending on how the season is going. The main difference is whether or not you're on the teams. There are a lot of issues among players and their coaches, but as long as that team is performing well in relation to everyone else in their bracket, the school doesn't care what goes on.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't pay attention to athletics department.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Pueblo has almost every sport at the University. Sadly, there is no school spirit, though. During the first few weeks, when the freshmen go to the first football games, they carry a lot of spirit and go to the games dressed up and screaming, but after a few games, everyone stops showing up because they get busy. The football stadium is brand-new, and it's the first time in about 10 years that Pueblo has a team that does pretty well. If any event brings out school spirit, it's Homecoming, which involves a football game followed by a very short parade and a dance. They actually choose a king and queen, too—just like in high school.

The second most popular sport at Pueblo is soccer. The soccer team won in 2010, and many students showed up for both the home and away games. Students do not dress up or scream at the games, but they do support the players. Other than that, Pueblo does have other good sport teams, but they're just not talked about. If you are interested in sports, however, the school gives out a lot of athletic scholarships to students.
