The Royal Way


The department of athletics provides a distinctly Jesuit athletic experience rooted in the religious and spiritual foundations of the University's Jesuit and Catholic mission. Unique formation prepares the foundations needed for a championship experience at Scranton and the habits of excellence needed for a lifetime. An intentional culture of love, service, personal and collective responsibility creates a distinct community and enduring interconnectedness.

Scranton Athletics: Distinctly Jesuit formation, culture, and community — a transformative academic and athletic experience preparing mind, body and soul to thrive here and hereafter.

Each Sunday during the academic year, we publish The Sunday Playbook, written by a student-athlete, coach or staff member. The Sunday Playbook is the author's account of what The Royal Way means to him or her, sometimes through a personal experience or how it relates to team culture.
