The sports teams are always encouraging the fans to come out to support the teams. I always have fun at the homecoming football games tailgating party that consists of grilling hamburgers and socializing before the game. The teams always work together in wins and losses. At all games but I've noticed especially at the football games, fans are always in red and green!

I think the athletics are doing just fine because its a less populated place compare to other city. Students are involve but I think few are mainly require from international students, which could have be of benefit to the school, however it is understandable due to regulation. Nevertheless, the athletic facilities are very updated and the wellness center its very passionate about their activities. The gym is perfect for Olympic which is my most favorite of probably i because i like it the most and as a two time gold medal in indoor rowing, I also appreciate the initiative of adding indoor rowing to the facilities.

Pretty Good – There are several options as far as food goes. The Beaver Creek has a salad/soup bar, a pizza area, a pasta/stir fry area, and then an a area that has a different meal every day. There is also a dessert bar! As far as beverages, there is milk, soda, and juice of different sorts. In the Beaver Dam, there is a wrap/sandwich area where you can use your meal plan. There is an cafeteria downstairs that has AWESOME flatbread pizza!
