Varsity athletics are certainly not Drexel's claim to fame. The University previously had a baseball team and a women's volleyball team, but they were cut for financial reasons. The school has never had a football team—though we'll be the first to poke fun at this fact. In recent seasons, Drexel students—the "DAC Pack"—came out in full force to cheer on the more-successful-than-usual basketball team. This was a small stride in the administration's efforts to increase school spirit. Intramurals, on the other hand, are much more popular. Students are involved in intramurals and club sports more than any other extracurricular activities. The most popular are volleyball, basketball, and lacrosse.
Drexel houses a single gym, but it is very modern and well-equipped (though it can get crowded at peak hours). The gym facilities include basketball, squash, badminton, and volleyball courts, weight rooms, a swimming and diving facility, dance studios, and the Independence Blue Cross Wellness Center. Drexel also offers a beach volleyball court, a multipurpose turf field, and more than 15 acres of athletic fields. For a city school, Drexel students are spoiled with the array of athletic endeavors in which they can partake.
