One of the awesome things about going to college is getting to enjoy all the athletics on campus. Whether it be participating in a rec (or intramural) sport or going to watch a varsity or club sport game, these events allow students to bond with each other and take a break from everything else going on. One of the advantages of going to a small school, like Messiah, is that you are likely to know some of the players on the varsity teams. This helps foster school spirit and adds to the amazing atmosphere surrounding the games. This is also one of the reasons why so many sporting events here have great attendance and it allows everyone to enjoy the success of our teams. Still, if your looking to take part in a sport but not at the varsity level, Messiah has amazing club teams and very competitive intramural leagues. These options allow you time to focus on your schoolwork while still enjoying the sport of your choice and being able to make new friends. So, whether it is watching a game or taking part in a sports club or intramural league, I strongly encourage each of you to take part in our athletics. It is fun, allows you to meet new people and provides a great break from studying.
