3 College Freshman

Athletics: Only people in sports pay attention to sports teams

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There is a big emphasis on the arts at this school, but we are also proud of our sports. There is always a good sized supportive student section at our sports games. Everyone gets involved during homecoming. It is possible to be very involved in our sports program, whether as a player or a fan, or not as involved.

The athletics facilities are great for athletes, there are good courts and a good track. But the facility isn't as welcoming to students who aren't athletes.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't participare in any sports, so I'm not really sure.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at our school are Division 3, but we are very competitive in many of them. Sports are attended, but not in great numbers. There is a following for each sport, though, and coaches and teammates are awesome.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: They have a decent gym where you can rent balls, and nets as long as the varsity sports don't have the courts rented out for practices. The work out facilities for non-athletes is pretty grim. There is a single balcony for all of the student to work out on, making machines very limited during peak hours. The weight rooms needs some help as it limits the activity that you can do. Varsity games are attended, but they aren't a huge deal among the students. The only game that people feel obligated to go to is the homecoming football game. Otherwise, you're not missing much.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are all kinds of students at Concordia—those who are extreme sports fanatics, those who are passive fans who enjoy attending games, and those who would rather be studying. The most popular sports games tend to be ones like the homecoming football game or games in the playoffs. Concordia is barely a Division III school, actually more of a subset, and while the school teams do fairly well on a yearly basis, they are not an important part of student life. Be warned, potential student: Sports are not the main focus of Concordia College.

The athletic facilities are satisfactory for students and athletes alike. They are accessible to athletes and all students and typically are very sanitary. Also, the intramural scene on campus is a decent size. Students can choose from sports ranging from ultimate Frisbee to pickleball to more popular ones like basketball and flag football. All of these require much less work than competing in actual school sports, but you still get to exercise and have fun during the week while taking a break from studying.

School Spirit
Some students genuinely care about sports teams on campus. These are the guys with painted chests at football games who attempt to do push-ups for every point scored. Many people also go to games wearing more clothing and doing fewer push-ups. Then there are also a large number of people who do not go to games at all-why waste time at a game when you could be studying?
Getting Tickets
Tickets for students are free, so in theory the whole school should show up for a match. However, not all students attend sports games.
Best Place to Take a Walk
The campus is lovely; the sidewalks are pristine. Take a walk on-campus and admire the variety of squirrels that call it home.
