We believe playing the sport you love is a key aspect of a stellar education. The companies that hire our Athlete-Scholars cite their work ethic, time management and collaborative spirit — all attributes developed though teamwork and high-level competition.
Proud members of the Liberty League, our 11 men’s and 12 women’s varsity teams compete in the NCAA’s Division III — with the exception of lacrosse, which competes in Division I.
We also have robust club and intramural offerings. We’re good at helping students maintain the balance.
Come do what you love. Get a great education. Here, you can have both.
