Today

Today, the NESCAC league hosts eleven schools, all of which participate in post season play. Middlebury has found great success in their tournament play, as they lead the NESCAC in total National Championship teams. Middlebury has captured 32 titles since the NESCAC conference lifted the ban on NCAA play in 1993. Middlebury College’s athletic funding is also the largest amount in the whole league, putting nearly 5 million dollars towards athletics.

The NESCAC league has been given the colloquial nickname “Little Ivies.” Though it is not an official title, it refers to the highly selective liberal arts schools that make up the NESCAC league. This term was derived from the fact that these eleven schools share similar qualities to those that make up the Ivy league. Academically elite as well as athletically talented, these schools have earned this name due to the highly competitive environment and practice.

This past decade the NESCAC has seen many advancements and improvements due to the ever expanding technological culture. Along with a basic conference internet home page, the league has been able to utilize social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and blogging. Because of these advancements people have access to NESCAC updates immediately after a contests has been played, from anywhere in the world.
