Johns Hopkins is a campus on the move. Hopkins student-athletes master balancing rigorous academics and demanding athletics.
With sports teams spanning from football to fencing, varsity athletics at Hopkins amplify school spirit. Season to season, students take to “The Nest,” the current student seating of Homewood Field, to cheer on their fellow Blue Jays.
The Tradition Scarf is a company founded by a Hopkins alumnus—its product, a Johns Hopkins-themed knit scarf, serves as a rally scarf at games and has quickly become an icon of Hopkins sports.
Our men’s lacrosse team has won 44 national championships, and other Hopkins teams finish top in the nation each year.
