Each Sport Club is run primarily by students, with assistance by the Department of Campus Recreation. Clubs are open to any Illinois State student regardless of skill level, but cuts are possible and costs vary depending on the specific club. Clubs typically practice on or near campus twice or more per week and primarily compete in-state or regionally on weekends during fall and spring semesters.

Also, it is steps away from locally owned shops, restaurants, and hotels in this thriving central business district.
