The cheerleaders are active members of the athletic department and represent the College throughout the school year. In addition to cheering at home football and men's and women's basketball games, the cheerleaders travel to numerous road contests. The members of the cheerleading squad practice on a regular basis during the school year and are engaged in a variety of community-service and fundraising activities during each academic year.
While the cheerleading squad is visible as a group, the individual members are leaders and scholars in their own right. Many are actively involved in fraternities/sororities, honorary societies, and as spokespeople at major campus events.
Cheerleading tryouts are held at the beginning and end of each school year.
