The athletics community is very close-knit. A lot of the students attending are involved in athletics because of scholarship opportunities. Sports is recognized and appreciated but does not dominate campus life. Since Our Lady of the Lake prides itself in being a community, students come and show their support. Even athletes from other sports come to other sporting events to support their peers. Team performance, especially for the Women's teams, is spectacular. Both men and women won many conference titles and qualified for national competitions.

Decent university with a great and passionate student body. As a student athlete, it is very apparent to see the support shown by everyone from professors to students. Unfortunately the negatives far outweigh the positives here. The cafe staff can be unprofessional at times while food and drinks are severely over priced; a case of water costs $40. The track & field being run by the current coach is an absolute joke. The unprofessional-ism and sexist discrimination portrayed by both head and assistant coaches has run the entire men's track team out the door.

Our school spirit is shockingly large, WINGS UP! All the sports here at ollu are equally supported and their performance is outstanding. The UWAC (gym) is probably one of the best kept up facilities here on campus.
