5 College Junior

Athletics: Our sports teams have tremendous support from the rest of our school, and allow us to have great appreciation and pride for all the work they put forth.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Very competitive and encourages fans to support.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Everybody is always super energetic and proud of the school they come from.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our school isn't the greatest considering we're a Division 3 school, and the students aren't all too excited about our athletics program, but we love our intramural sports. We have a pretty nice gym on campus for students and staff to work out and a nice indoor pool.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I personally am not a big sport person, so I don't attend many events. However, school spirit is everywhere. There are rallies, posters, flash mobs, etc. This school is also very good with regards to varsity sports. They usually place in the top three in their division. There are also a variety of club sports too. There's even a quittage team. There are also certain hours when non-athletes can take advantage of the sports facilities like the pool, courts, and rock climbing wall.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

It is very clear when you step into Sea Gull territory that athletics play a big role in the lives of students. For varsity sports, lacrosse and field hockey are certainly some of the biggest draws, as they are national champions in their respective leagues. However, football and soccer are also popular and draw spirited crowds during the season. For students who do not make the varsity teams, there is a strong intramural spirit. No matter the sport, there is certainly no lack of teams to participate in the tournaments that take place. Soccer, softball, and flag football are perhaps the most popular, but any of the intramural sports are competitive. The biggest benefits of the intramural program include the ability to get exercise and meet many new people.

The passion for sports is never in short supply on campus and neither is school spirit. Whenever a home game is played, students pack the stands in support of the Sea Gulls and cheer on the athletes to do their best. The superfans can be easily spotted by the red, white, and yellow body paint they proudly display. In short, whether varsity or intramural or even just matches among friends, athletics are held near and dear at SU.

School Spirit
Athletics are a big part of campus life, but the events are not always well attended. However, when fans come out to support their teams, they are loud and proud. On many occasions, superfans come out with team colors and names painted on their bodies. These are perhaps the loudest fans of all.
Getting Tickets
Tickets for football and lacrosse may be purchased at the Sea Gull Stadium booth. Tickets for basketball may be purchased in the lobby of Maggs. In both cases, unless the match is particularly popular, the wait time is short. Tickets are reasonably priced, with $5 for general admission, $3 for non-SU students and SU alumni, $2 for kids ages 5 through 12, and free to all kids under 5, as well as to students and faculty.
Best Place to Take a Walk
