Why Endicott?


THE BASICS

Mission Statement

The Department of Athletics and Recreation supports the College’s mission by providing an experiential opportunity for individual development outside of the traditional classroom setting. Backed by committed administrators, coaches and faculty, all students are challenged and encouraged to reach their physical, intellectual, and social potential through participation in a broad-based program of intercollegiate, club sport, intramural, and recreational offerings.

In addition, The Department encourages the development of sportsmanship and positive societal attitudes in all constituents; including students, faculty, staff, alumni, and spectators. We seek to establish and maintain an environment that values the principles of fair play, amateur athletic competition, cultural diversity and gender equity. In this environment, students are provided with experiences that honor effort and perseverance, rewards self-discipline, and promotes mutual understanding and respect.  

In pursuant to the College’s mission, the department seeks to change lives by engaging students in a variety of offerings that encourage a healthy lifestyle and challenge participants to meet and exceed personal goals and expectations through sport.

THE REASONS

"I chose Endicott because it allowed me to balance school, football, and my social life.  The DIII atmosphere provided an opportunity to come in and compete right away for playing time."
- Craig Lussier '13, Football 

 "Endicott is the perfect fit for me both academically and athletically.  Student-athletes at Endicott are afforded the opportunity to succeed both in the classroom and on the playing field and I am certain that I will graduate with an unprecedented amount of knowledge based on the way academics and athletics has shaped me."
- Lexi Dussi '14, Women's Soccer

"I have gained valuable experience through Endicott's extensive internship program that has provided me with confidence in my post-graduation plans.  Competing at the DIII level has allowed me to strike a nice balance between athletics, academics, and campus life, resulting in an overall amazing experience."
- Mike Coniglione '14, Men's Volleyball

 "There were a lot of factors that went into my decision-making on where to attend college.  Having watched three older brothers elect to go to DI lacrosse programs at Notre Dame, West Point, and Bryant, I realized that atmosphere was not the right fit for me.  I knew I wanted to study abroad at some point during my collegiate career and Endicott, and the DIII atmosphere, would allow me to do that."
- Isabelle Sipperly '16, Women's Lacrosse

"Endicott is more than a college, it is a community that makes you feel at home.  The choice to play DIII baseball instead of any other level came because of my desire to be at Endicott.  The division was just a number to me; it was more about finding the right fit of a school and the level of competition was secondary."
- Mike Nich '12, Baseball

"Endicott gave me the opportunity to be part of a team collectively reaching for goals.  This school allows me to be coached by a staff that not only will help me reach my highest athletic potential on the court but also genuinely cares about my life and my success off the court."
- Amy Heacox '15, Women's Tennis
