Nicholls State University fields 14 athletic teams as a member of NCAA Division I and the Southland Conference. Nicholls has six men’s athletic programs and eight women’s athletic programs.
With free admission to athletic events for students, it’s easy to show your Colonel pride! Pick up your spirit gear from the Nicholls bookstore and join fellow Colonels for football tailgating, evenings in Stopher Gym with the basketball and volleyball teams, afternoons at the baseball and softball diamonds and much more.
Student athletes and fans can get all the info at the official site of Colonel Athletics by visiting geauxcolonels.com
For some students, watching the Colonels in action just isn’t enough. For those who strive to be part of the action, campus recreation has got you covered.
Campus Recreation encourages students to remain active and healthy on campus by providing intramural sports, weekly fitness classes and other programming. This office also maintains Ayo Pool (free membership to all students), student work-out facilities as well as the brand new student recreation center set to open in Fall 2012.
