We've built a program that helps women become well-rounded, more confident leaders as well as stronger, more successful athletes. Leadership training, community involvement and communication skills are other critical components of our athletic program.
SJU has a rich tradition of athletic success; contending annually for MIAC championships and competing at the national level. SJU annually ranks among the top three programs in the MIAC All-Sports Trophy race. In the last decade, SJU has won four national championships.
In addition to varsity sports, CSB/SJU offer club sports ranging from lacrosse and rugby to crew and dance. These teams provide the camaraderie and the competition you would find in a varsity sport. In many cases the teams travel and compete against other colleges and universities across the country.
CSB/SJU offer many ways to stay active. More than 2,000 students participate in our very popular intramural programs, competing against each other for bragging rights, an intramural champions T-shirt, and a spot on the intramurals "Wall of Champions."
We have room for you to roam, trails for you to explore, and adventures for you to take. Our Outdoor Leadership Center will outfit you with the gear you need, from backpacks to tents to snowshoes. The center also sponsors a number of programs and clinics such as kayaking, fly-fishing, snowshoeing, and scuba diving.
Each campus has a fitness center so you can work out when it's most convenient, as well as a pool, tennis courts and track. Personal trainers are available to create free individualized training programs. We also offer a full schedule of fitness classes, from yoga to Pilates and cardio kickboxing.
