We aren’t called Lions for nothing. Our student-athletes compete in 14 Division III Intercollegiate programs. We belong to the highly competitive New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) and are home to teams in basketball, baseball, cross-country, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball.

Every student has access to high-quality facilities, supportive fitness staff, and a variety of physical activities, ranging from dodgeball to kickball to quidditch. Our fitness center has state-of-the-art equipment and machines, and our gym hosts open hours for shooting hoops or playing games. We encourage you to meet fellow students, start a personalized exercise program, or try out a group fitness class.  

Whether you’re competing in a Division III match or playing in a pick-up game, taking part in Emerson athletics and recreation builds self-discipline, teamwork, and grit. These traits reinforce your ability to excel in academics and at any goal you set in life.
