Student Testimonies:

William, Nina, and Miles explain how sport clubs have enhanced their experience at Chico State:

William Evans, Men's Rugby, Criminal Justice Major, Class of 2023

“the club gave me a circle of people that I would consider my best friends, and an activity that made me feel like I actually was a part of this school, rather than sailing through it.”

Nina Uhl, Rowing, Multicultural & Gender Studies, Class of 2024

“As an international student, I came here knowing nobody. Rowing gave me the opportunity to get to know the most incredible people who are now the closest friends I've ever had. Rowing also kept me motivated to take care of myself and my academics.”

Miles Kaneko, Bass Fishing, Business Administration, Class of 2023

“By participating on the Chico State Bass Team my experience at Chico State was enhanced by allowing me to do what I love most and be able to meet new people and friends who share a common interest.”
