JMU recently experienced a boost for its athletics with the construction of the football program's new Bridgeforth Stadium. Though only a Division II school, JMU's football team enjoys a warm welcome from the enthusiastic student body at each game. Parents Week and Homecoming come with a shower of purple and gold paint and an excuse for students to overflow the stadium with cheers and whoops. The newly renovated stadium is packed with students during home games. It’s not uncommon to see piles and piles of school spirit radiating from each eager JMU student. When they’re not belting the JMU fight song, they’re assuming the posture and energy of the JMU mascot, the Duke dog.
If you’re not as invested in football, JMU offers a slew of different recreational sports teams, including archery, water polo, tennis, soccer, and much more. If you really want to deviate from tradition, choose fencing or the JMU quidditch team. Club sports and intramurals allow a student to get their fix of actively engaging in their chosen sport without it swamping their academic and personal lives.
