2 College Sophomore

Athletics: My school is the pits in football and basketball but we are the top in baseball. Many st,dents attend on athletic scholarships and the school has many rival teams with long histories of back and forth wins and losses.

2 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Team involvement and performance go hand in hand to show support for the school. School sprit is designed to help banter the need of the students and support the need for bigger stadiums and creative athletics needs.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Do you have athletic pride? Are you prepared to bleed orange and blue? If the answer to both of these questions is "Yes," then you're SSU ready. The Savannah State athletics program is Division I in the MEAC (Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference). Students support all athletic events, which are free to attend as long as you have your student ID. In addition to varsity athletics, at Savannah State, students have intramural sports that are dynamic and available to all students. So if you have "Tiger pride," you're in for the ride of your life. In August 2011, a new football stadium was completed. Another recent addition includes new athletic recruitment officers being hired in order to ensure continued future success in the department.

A major facility used by athletes, as well as students in general, is the Body Shop, where you can go to exercise. Many machines and equipment are available. The Body Shop is free of charge, and students must have a valid ID in order to be admitted.
