Marlin Athletic Club

What is the Marlin Athletic Club?

The Marlin Athletic Club (MAC) is the foundation for the Virginia Wesleyan University Athletic Department. Our objective is to be a nationally competitive athletic program that distinguishes itself and the University through the quality of student-athletes we attract and graduate. 

As a member of the Old Dominion Athletic Association (ODAC) and contenders at the Division III level of the NCAA, we recognize our athletes our students first and must remain in good standing academically. Athletics develop teamwork, respect, spirit, and ingenuity. VWU's athletic department gives students opportunities to participate in activities that open their minds and strengthen their abilities both on the playing field and in the classroom.
