4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not necessarily well attended by the students, only sometimes. Swim team has won their conference title for the past 9 years. Softball field could be improved. Difficult curriculums at the school, so many do not have the capabilities to attend sporting events. The sporting events should be pushed more. Many commuters, so all are not necessarily on campus all the time to be involved.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is school spirt for an sports and the weight room is terrible.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I play for the women's soccer team on campus and we have won our conference the past 5 years. Varsity sports on our campus are a big part of our school and there is much school spirit.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Unlike the main campus, Penn State Erie does not stress athletic programs, our school is a joke.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: On my campus, sports are a big part of the Behrend campus.Student involvement is good.In detail, student can do lots of activities to help of teams such as apply for a job that requires federal work study. the team performance is outstanding because the team plays very good in many of the sports and has made it to the top final teams. Fan support is described good because the events include family members and friends attending there. school spirit is average and reason is that the campus hold some event and activities that support each sports team but there are less rallies and celebrations for them. The athletic facilities is great because the players are trained to perform their very best.

School Spirit
Behrend students are generally very proud of their school. Most simply say they go to "Behrend" and do not even mention the Penn State part of the school name. Although Behrend was once thought of as a two- year school for students who didn't get into University Park, that has changed drastically in recent years. Most students now stay at Behrend all four years, and more and more students are applying to Behrend as their first-choice campus over University Park. Most students here are seen wearing either Behrend or Penn State apparel. Alumni are very connected with students and provide a lot of help to students searching for careers.
Getting Tickets
Behrend students have the same opportunity as students at University Park to purchase any tickets and at the same prices. But if you want to get season tickets to football games at University Park, you better be online the minute they go on sale because they sell out in about a minute (literally). At Behrend, you can go to any sporting event you want for free, and you will not have to worry about anything selling out.
