Our sports are very good, often winning national/conference championships, but games are typically not very well attended. I get the sense that people generally only go if they have a friend on the team or if it's a particularly important game (NESCAC finals, Williams game, homecoming). Socially, being on a team, varsity or club (particularly frisbee and crew), is generally very helpful, and a lot of teams seem to exclusively socialize with themselves or other athletes, leading to what some call an athlete-nonathlete divide. There's definitely certain areas of campus that are seen as where athletes hang out, or where athletes live. It will be interesting to see if the demolition of the Socials and decrease of suite-style housing will do anything to bridge that divide. On the administrative side, there's definitely been complaints about lack of funding for club and intramural sports, in which a lot of people participate, particularly when it comes to field time. Club sports are administered and funded by the student government, but people seem to think it would be better to consolidate all athletic activities under the athletic department. Overall, though, Amherst has many opportunities for students to get involved in sports at different levels, and it is easy to start a new intramural league for anything that isn't already available.
