Bay College Introducing Athletics

Bay College is excited to announce the addition of an athletic program in Fall, 2017, providing intercollegiate competition for students in women’s and men’s sports.  Athletes will compete with other two year colleges primarily in Michigan and Northern Wisconsin, as well as smaller four year colleges and universities, as part of the National Junior College Athletic Association.

Initial sports offered at Bay College starting in 2017 will include:
Men’s & Women’s Cross Country            Fall
Men’s Basketball                                   Winter
Women’s Basketball                              Winter
“We are very excited to add athletics to our already strong Academics and Arts programs at Bay College” explained Dr. Laura Coleman, Bay College President.  “Athletics complete the educational triangle consisting of academics (mental), arts (creative) and athletics (physical), which has always been my dream.”  Sports on campus will provide all Bay College students added opportunity, as well as help with student recruitment, especially with steadily declining high school enrollments.

Bay College will be developing a team name and mascot.  We are asking for your input on team names as well as mascot ideas during the month of April.  Please share them at .  Bay College is publically planning on introducing the team name and mascot in August. 

Bay College is a public 2 year college located in Escanaba, MI with additional opportunities on West Campus located in Iron Mountain, Manistique courses, clinics across the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and online courses and programs.  Visit for more information or contact or 906.217.4010.  Find your success… the Bay Way!
