soccer players congratulating each other


With 35 athletic teams spanning varsity, varsity reserve, intramural and club sports, Roosevelt University has many reasons to cheer for its Lakers. Our student-athletes compete in baseball, basketball, bowling, cross-country, eSports, football, golf, hockey, performing arts, soccer, softball, spirit, tennis, track and field, and volleyball. Go Lakers!

A Family Affair

Damian and Emily Zalewski

While some families get to see their Laker student-athlete excel in different sports, other families have more than one student-athlete donning the Green and White. In fact, there are five sets of siblings currently competing for Laker teams, either on the same squad or in different sports.

"There’s a feeling of satisfaction knowing I can squeeze everything in and maintain my grades, performance and sanity. Being on two teams has surrounded me with the support system of two amazing groups of girls and coaches. At the end of the day, it’s all worth it."
