Cardinal Athletics has played an important role in the history of SVSU. The Varsity Athletic Endowed Scholarship was established and is funded by the revenues generated by the Varsity Walk Brick program.
Through the Varsity Brick Walk program, former varsity athletes have an opportunity to “pave the way” for current and future Cardinal student athletes to continue a great tradition. Established in 2005, the Varsity Walk Brick program honors any SVSU athlete that competed in at least one year of varsity competition. These bricks are “planted” at the doorstep, or main entrance, to the Cardinal Outdoor Athletic Complex.
