Allen University has officially re-joined the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The unanimous vote of the SIAC Council of Presidents to admit Allen is a bi-product of the NCAA membership committee’s decision to admit Allen as year-one provisional member of the NCAA.
Previously, Allen was a member of the SIAC from 1947-68. The university is excited to join the SIAC again and looks forward to not only the healthy competition to come, but the caliber of students to compete. With a dedicated athletics staff and a healthy pool of student athletes, the institution is well on its way to an athletic renaissance.
Allen sponsors thirteen intercollegiate programs. Affectionately referred to as the Yellow Jackets, student-athletes compete in men’s football, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s track & field, and women’s volleyball, women’s softball, men’s soccer and men’s wrestling.
