    The low and high ropes course at Saint Leo University is designed to promote effective communication and teamwork in a group setting, while encouraging individuals to challenge themselves in a safe and friendly environment.

    Groups of 12 (or more) can reserve a time for a certified instructor to take them through the low ropes (usually a six to eight hour time frame is required) or the high ropes (usually an eight hour time frame is required). The ropes course is open to students, faculty and staff.

    Directly across the road from campus, the 18-hole regulation-length public golf course features 5,659 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71. Designed by Marion Bowman, the Abbey Course opened in 1960, and offers custom club fitting and repair at the fully stocked pro shop.

    Athletic Hall of Fame

    The Athletic Hall of Fame was organized in 1987 to recognize alumni, coaches and administrators who have brought honor and distinction to Saint Leo University through their outstanding athletic achievement and contributions to society.
