3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletes are very talented, but not very kind people. The women seem to be a little more respectful than the men.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: A football team was just recently added to the school so we're not the best, yet. The baseball team is phenomenal though so that makes up for it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Stetson is a small school, and in my experience, most of the school goes to watch the sports games/matches in support of the athletes at the school. It is a small community, it feels like cheering on a small town of friends you grew up with!

3 College Junior

Athletics: It is a school more renowned for its education, however the school is D1 and has very good baseball, sand volleyball, and women's basketball teams.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Stetson really cares about its athletics, especially basketball. During the season, students can check out games and become involved. But not all sports share the same support. For the most part, only certain sports get attention. Other sports teams—such as crew, tennis, and soccer—receive less funding and support. The good thing about the athletics here, however, is that the teams themselves share a lot of pride. With that pride, there is a good amount of sports to choose from if someone wanted to join or just be a spectator.

As a student, the amount of involvement in athletics is entirely up to you. At times it's difficult to find time to support teams due to classwork, work itself, and any involvement in clubs or Greek life. Occasionally, there will be a big push for games, and the University will manage to pull in thousands of people to the event. But this is a once-a-year event, not an everyday occurrence. In terms of athletic facilities, the fields and courts are well maintained. There is almost always someone on the soccer fields whether they are just tossing a ball around or practicing for a game. The facilities also keep hours that mesh well with students' schedules, which allows them to workout outside of the team practices.

School Spirit
The school spirit at Stetson is mediocre. It's not too strong, but it's not absent. Students are constantly wearing Stetson gear, and there is a decent turnout to the games. There is more school spirit if you're involved in Greek life.
Getting Tickets
It is rather easy to get tickets to Stetson athletic events. For most games, unless it's a special event, tickets are free to students. You can also access tickets easily online, through the Athletics site.
Best Place to Take a Walk
Just walking around on campus is nice. If you stay near the quad, you can see all the lights from the fountain and just relax.
