Athletics

Work Hard, Play Hard.

At St. Joseph’s College, you’ll be encouraged to exercise your talents beyond the classroom.

There’s probably no better way to become fully integrated into campus life than participating in some form of athletic pursuit. At SJC, you’ll have opportunities to make friends and stay active in a sport you already know well — or you can enjoy a completely new challenge.

You’ll have more choices than time. Just don’t stay on the sideline — unless, of course, you’re cheering enthusiastically for your fellow students.

Division III Excellence
