Intercollegiate Athletics

Athletics Brochure Cover


In just 17 years, FGCU has built a competitive NCAA Division I athletics program composed of 15 teams. The campus gained national acclaim and was christened "Dunk City" for the men’s basketball team’s phenomenal run to the Sweet 16. We are proud of our Eagles and the recognition all of our teams have received.

Our student-athletes hold a significantly higher average GPA than the overall student population. In fact, in a recent semester 27 student-athletes earned a GPA of 4.0, and 107 exceeded 3.5.

A successful athletics program can be a unifying element across an entire campus, galvanizing faculty and students, and building both spirit and identity. You can ensure athletics continues to enrich FGCU’s campus culture by investing in priorities such as these:

  • First-class facilities that help the university attract and retain first-rate student-athletes and exceptional coaches
  • Scholarships for student-athletes, which form the core around which thriving athletics programs are built
  • Eagle Funds for Excellence that provide unrestricted support annually, enabling FGCU to compete in the national arena
