Athletics, Organizations & Traditions

This campus is about so much more than academics. Students here connect, play, celebrate, laugh, rave, unwind, serve, cheer and perform. We have a lot of pride and a deep sense of community.



Varsity Athletics

The red pride of a Cardinal game day is something you have to experience; just don't plan on sitting while you're here. Our students, professors and staff not only show up to games, we dress up, stand up, team up and rally up. Cardinals roar with pride for all 500 of our varsity athletes. When the marching band blares our fight song, you'll hear the cheers far beyond the stadium.

Club Sports & Campus Recreation

Dedicated to promoting health awareness, a sense of community, and a lifelong appreciation for wellness.

Club Sports allows Cardinals to compete and grow their athletic passion at a collegiate level. Each Club is organized and maintained through student efforts, with support from faculty and staff. The success of individual Club Sports are directly attributed to the dedication and drive of its student leadership.

Over 2,000 students chose to participate in at least one campus recreational program last year from offerings such as Cardinal Fitness classes, Intramurals, Outside SVSU, personal training and health and wellness education.
