4 College Senior

Athletics: The football team is horrible, and not a lot of people go to the games. Other sports have won National Championships, and are very proud of the work they put in. DIII athletics means that the school does not revolve around sports, but it is relatively easy to walk-on or tryout for a varsity program if you are interested.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Field hockey team is awesome!

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The football team sucks, soccer is okay. The track team is really good, and girls field hockey is too.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: The only reason I rate it lower than average is because of the football program - it sucks.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are d3, we loose a lot of our own home games
