Intercollegiate sports. Intramurals. Exercise. Wellness. At Marywood University, we believe one cannot separate spiritual awareness and intellectual growth from physical activity. We are deeply committed to helping students realize their full potential through the values they gain from being part of a team or from engaging in physical fitness activities. Several projects honor our commitment to wellness and to community, including our new synthetic turf field, enhancements to our grass and softball fields, and our recently completed Aquatics Center. Athletics have blossomed at Marywood, making the University more appealing to the multi-dimensional students who enhance our diverse community of future leaders.
The Aquatics Center features an eight-lane, NCAA-compliant intercollegiate competition pool that includes three-meter and one-meter diving platforms as well as the latest in visiting team and fan comfort. It has enabled us to establish men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams, and it will support aquatics classes in our health and physical education curriculum along with providing community recreation opportunities.
