Although Cornell isn’t seriously focused on its athletic program like one of the Big 10 schools, we still come to dominate in several sports, including hockey, lacrosse, wrestling, and polo. In the future, it is without a doubt that Cornell will become increasingly more competitive and progressively more powerful in Division I athletics. As a result, the next few years will be a very exciting time for Big Red sports, and the future has big things in store as Cornell continues to catch more glimpses in the national spotlight!
Cornell is well-known for its men’s hockey team, which constantly ranks in the national top 10. Lynah Rink is consistently packed for home games, and students camp out days in advance just to secure season tickets. The football team, although not nearly as good, attracts a decent-size crowd during home games in Schoellkopf Stadium. However, most other teams fail to draw so much attention and students are generally apathetic and indifferent to the results of some other up-and-coming teams. Many students like intramural sports. Intra-school competition is fierce, especially amongst Greek members. IMs are a great way to stay active, get some exercise, and meet new people with similar interests.
