The sports programs are well respected at SU. Many students on the football and baseball teams are recruits, with one of the most popular teams being baseball. Many students attend sporting events when they are not busy with schoolwork. The times of the sporting events really help get students to the games because they are usually held at night. The basketball and football games have the most school spirit, but the intramural sports clubs are also very lively and exciting.
Most students who just want to play sports for fun and not for competitiveness sign up for intramural teams. While the intramural teams are very exciting, they can sometimes get very violent and intense. The athletic facilities are always accessible during normal work hours. They are all generally quite clean, except for the occasional days when you have sweaty towels on the floor. All in all, the main athletic department building is always full of life and energy.
