Athletics: I don't really participate in them

4 College Junior

Athletics: We have pool, football fiels, tennis courts, a gym.

3 College Senior

Athletics: After school activities don't seem highly relevant.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The QC Gym is a disgrace. It is located in a small, cramped room without windows. Because there aren't any windows the musk and heavy smell lingers in the room, making it hard to breathe. It is also unsanitary. Often times students will use machines and move on to the next without properly cleaning it. Whenever I enter the QC Gym all I use are the treadmills because there is limited touching. The building itself needs to be expanded.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Sports play a large part in student life on campus. Students are involved in varsity, intramural, and recreational athletics, and students in intramural sports play in the ECC, or East Coast Conference. QC participates in the NCAA and NCAA Division II. Sports offered for men are baseball, basketball, cross country, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, and track & field; for women, there's basketball, cross country, fencing, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field, and volleyball. Students who have satisfied the necessary academic requirements are eligible to participate in sports. The gym on campus consists of a really nice fitness center and several rooms in which aerobics, yoga, and other classes are offered.

Queens College was chosen to host three 2010 NCAA Division II Tennis East Regional events. The Queens College Athletic Department also sponsors frequent opportunities like the “Fall Fun Run" to encourage physical activity within the community. Queens offers sports camps and invites coaches and student athletes to help the campers learn and improve their skills in sports. The mascot of Queens College is Sir Winsalot the Knight, introduced in 2008; he appears at Knights and Lady Knights home games.
