Western is a Division I school, and for football, spirit is off the charts. Hockey, baseball, soccer, swimming, tennis, track and field, rugby, and lacrosse are also some of the biggest sports at the University. Football games are outrageous; the stands are filled with cheering students, decked out in school apparel. Tailgating is one of the most attended events on campus.
In terms of facilities, there is the Student Recreation Center, filled with workout equipment, where students can be seen getting their fitness on. Students can also work out at the Donald Seelye Athletic Center, where the football team practices and trains. This gym is centered mostly around free weights and cardio equipment.
