At the University of Louisiana at Monroe, athletics is a big part of campus, but it is not everything. Last season may have possibly been the worst season for the football team in the school's history. The water ski team has one over 20 national championship titles. The basketball team has come very close to winning the Sun Belt Conference title. Other sports such as soccer, softball, baseball, both sand and indoor volleyball don't get as much recognition as the previous sports but they do receive some.
