Emerson is a place of academic excellence, passion, and teamwork—all of which extend far beyond the classroom and into its 14 NCAA Division III teams. More than 200 student-athletes at Emerson strike a balance between academics in the classroom and their commitments on the playing surface, allowing them to stay competitive as student-athletes. The College, the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC), and the NCAA often recognize our students for their exceptional accomplishments, and the Emerson Lions compete each season in post-season tournaments. Emerson also sponsors and supports intramural and recreational activities according to student interest. Team rosters, schedules, coaches’ profiles, and sports updates can be found online at emersonlions.com.
