Athletics

At CMU, you can attend games … and play them.

Last season, fans celebrated CMU football’s Little Caesars Pizza Bowl victory at Ford Field and the women’s basketball team’s Mid-American Conference championship and journey to the NCAA Tournament.

Our field hockey team has the nation’s highest GPA, and the women’s soccer team was tops seven years in a row! CMU’s 400-plus athletes are pursuing degrees in 67 majors.

CMU students can attend the games of 16 NCAA Division I-A varsity sports for free.

You can play, too.

More than 12,000 Chips compete on intramural teams and in club sports, in one of the nation’s largest intramural programs. Flag football, volleyball, wrestling, swimming, disc golf and Quidditch … find your team.

Students use fitness centers in the residence halls and the massive Student Activity Center to swim, bowl, lift weights and run. You’ll also have access to hundreds of miles of local biking and walking trails.
