Athletic Giving

Southern's Athletics: A Tradition of Excellence for Nearly 75 Years

Consistently ranking among the top 10 Division II colleges and universities for the most individual championships, Southern prides itself on athletic excellence. At the heart of our success is our active membership in a number of esteemed athletic conferences, including the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Northeast-10 Conference. Since our programs compete at the national level, our student-athletes bring public recognition to the university at a high level.

Success as a student-athlete requires striking a balance between academics and athletics, and our students have found that balance. Each year, a number of our student-athletes are honored for academic success by the Northeast-10 Conference with selections to the league’s Commissioner’s Honor Roll.

But our student athletes perform best when they are not burdened by financial concerns. With your contributions to athletic scholarships and programs, we can continue the tradition of excellence by providing our student athletes with the necessary tools to achieve success.
