With 21 varsity teams and a host of other activities—from club sports and intramural leagues to wellness and fitness classes—Oxy helps you engage body and mind.
A classical ideal was expressed as Mens sana in corpore sano: a sound mind in a healthy body. More than half of students participate in one or more athletics activities, and Oxy’s commitment to excellence extends from the classroom to the playing field, amplifying the leadership, teamwork and discipline skills that will serve you now and in the future.
About a quarter of our students compete at the varsity NCAA Division III level, producing conference championships across multiple sports and a host of Academic All-Americans. “All in for Oxy” is more than a slogan—it’s a way of life when you become a Tiger. You can find more information on varsity athletics at our athletics site.
Join the club
Oxy’s robust intramural and club sport offerings are recognized as a valuable part of the educational experience. They are run with a minimum of faculty/staff supervision and provide a competitive outlet for students in a less formal setting. Club sports also create leadership opportunities for students and valuable experience in structuring and running an organization.
Strong body, strong mind
