Athletics: We have some very good teams, but the fields for soccer, lacrosse and baseball could be improved into an actually stadium.

4 College Senior

Athletics: For a small school, we have some won quite a few national championships. Some teams are always great and some are not so great, but overall I know we are a respected school among others for our athletic teams. Home games are always full of school spirit and fan support.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are not what I expected, considering my original first choice school was known for football and the current school I am attending has no football team whatsoever. However, the school prides themselves on their basketball and soccer teams, plus have a wide variety of intramural sports open to any and all types of students - whether they be seasoned athletes or beginners. I myself have participated in flag football and bowling and found both to be awesome. That being said, I chose my college based on their academic standards, not their athletics department.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Being a former collegiate athlete, I can say that the athletic department at FSC is among the strongest in DII. Many of the sports teams are highly ranked in the country and compete at the highest level. It is very possible for new students to become walk-ons in the various sports and most the sports are supported by the student body.

Athletics: I'm not interested in sports, so I do not care about them very much.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Team spirit is high throughout the campus. Every team is well respected, though some are definitely more popular than others. FSC sports attire is worn by at least a couple of people in each class. Without a football team, however, there is not a crazy fervor running through the school on Fridays in the fall. This may be a letdown for major football fans, but with so many other sports teams to root for, there is no lack of sports enthusiasm. Intramural teams are very popular, especially among the Greek community. Games are normally somewhat competitive, but with an overall good nature. There is a variety of sports to choose from, for every level of physical activity. Some examples are basketball, ultimate Frisbee, tennis, and even rock-paper-scissors. There really is something for everyone.

The athletic facilities are very clean and well maintained, whether indoor or outdoor. The wellness center contains the basketball courts, a side room for various classes, and a workout center. The classes are free for students and vary from semester to semester. Classes include Zumba, ab attack, yoga, fitastic, and Pilates. The workout center has a variety of exercise equipment. The center is well-used by students, but almost never very busy, so students have a good chance to be able to use the equipment whenever they want. It is not an intimidating atmosphere, either. The wellness center also provides wellness screenings, a free service that measures a student's physical fitness and suggests healthier meal plans and workout schedules based on the student's fitness goals.
