In the 15 sports that D'Youville has, you have fall sports-- men and women's soccer, women's tennis, women's volleyball. In the wintertime you got men's and women's basketball, and men's volleyball. In the spring you've got baseball and softball, you've got men's and women's cross-country. So we have a great variety of sports here at D'Youville.

We have great facilities, state-of-the-art, brand new $6 million outdoor athletic facility with turf and lights that allow our student athletes to make all of their classes and then practice at nighttime under the lights. And our gym is pretty much brand new as well.

And a Division three school, like we are, it's not so much focus on athletics, so it's where you can do what you enjoy and do what you love, but you still have plenty of time to do your school work and study and all that kind of stuff.

Playing sports has definitely changed the college experience for me. When I first came here, basically the only people that I knew were my teammates because they were the first people that I was introduced to, so they kind of became a family. And that helped lead the way to me meeting other student athletes and getting involved in clubs on campus that have to do with athletics. So it really has broadened my horizons and introduced me to so many people that I don't think I would have had the chance to meet if I hadn't played sports here.
