4 College Freshman

Athletics: When it comes down to our athletics we have so much school spirit. We love showing each sport our time and effort we never show one more than others because each one counts.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: I heard they were okay, but they not that good so aw man :/

3 College Senior

Athletics: The athletic facilities need work. So many things happen on campus and there is not enough room for everyone to use the same facilities. It makes it difficult for athletes and students to workout.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have good athletic groups . And the campus supports them fully .

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at Savannah State can be very committed to what sport they play. I believe that when it comes to home games for any sport we have great school spirit. I have been to all the home football and basketball games, I believe that they try their hardest when it comes team performance.

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.
