Pet Policy
We remind you that pets are not permitted at the Saint Michael's Athletics fields nor at the indoor facilities. If you have a question, a special need or a concern regarding the policy, please contact Director of Athletic Internal Operations Kara Lowe at

Spectator Code of Conduct
Saint Michael’s College, the Northeast-10 Conference and the NCAA promote good sportsmanship by student-athletes, coaches and spectators. We request your cooperation by supporting the participants and officials in a positive manner. Profanity, racial or sexist comments, or other intimidating actions directed at officials, student-athletes, coaches, or team representatives will not be tolerated and are grounds for removal from the venues. Also, consumption or possession of alcoholic beverages or tobacco products is prohibited. Please note that gum is not permitted on Duffy Field.

For the safety and enjoyment of the intercollegiate contests played in the Doc Jacobs Field Complex, we ask that spectators refrain from bringing athletics equipment and balls of any kinds into the facility. We would like to protect the safety of all within the complex and not detract from the contests being conducted. Please remember that spectators are not permitted on the playing fields before, during or at the conclusion of contests, and that alcohol, tobacco and pets are not allowed within the fence that borders the Doc Jacobs Field Complex.

Saint Michael's Becomes Tobacco-Free Campus
"I want to stress that we are doing this because of the overwhelming effect this will have on the health of our entire community. We will use [the 2016-17] academic year to support community members, faculty, staff and students, through education and cessation programs. We will not stigmatize anyone, but hope rather that we can support each other simply because when we are Tobacco Free our entire community will be healthier."

Sincerely, John J. Neuhauser
Former Saint Michael's College President
