Learning doesn’t end in the classroom. For about a quarter of Lawrentians, learning continues on the field, court, track, ice, fencing piste, and in the pool through athletics.

Our Vikings compete on 24 varsity-level teams against other schools around the Midwest. All LU athletes share a commitment to bringing the curiosity of learning to their sport and working hard as both a student and an athlete.

While student-athletes spend time on the road during their seasons, at home they train in our facilities with dedicated athletic trainers and supportive coaches. Providing athletic and academic resources to support each student-athlete is essential to aid in their development and allows ýƵ’s teams to grow and succeed together.
