Athletics Programs


Indiana State student-athletes compete at the NCAA Division I level in 15 varsity sports.  Intercollegiate athletics promotes pride and school spirit among student-athletes, students, alumni, and fans.  Through competition, student-athletes develop leadership, discipline, teamwork, and accountability.  Likewise, members of The Forest – the student section at Sycamore athletics events – build camaraderie, share experiences, and form friendships that last a lifetime.

Indiana State also offers club and intramural sports programs.  These programs reside within the Office of Campus Recreation, and engage 4,000 students in competitive sport each year.
