For students, lately there have only been two sports worth attending: volleyball and basketball. Each year the attendance varies, but these two teams can draw in a large community and student crowd. The student section in the ARC is usually filled with the Pep Band and fans sporting brown and gold. There are many other athletic teams on campus, but they draw much smaller crowds.
There is a football team, but while decent, they have enormous trouble filling the stands for every home game, except Homecoming. The softball team is continuing to improve with each consecutive year’s success, and in turn, is gaining more of a regular crowd. Most of the other Division I sports don’t draw much of a crowd at all.
Many students also like to play sports. Intramurals are available to anyone who wants to play, and they are a great way for a large number of students to stay in shape and take a much needed break from studying. About half of the student body gets involved in at least one intramural sport. Many teams are created by Greek organizations, other clubs, residents sharing a wing, and groups of friends. The highly coveted champion t-shirt is the reward for winning tournaments.
