Since 1996, Southern Virginia University has established a tradition of athletic excellence winning nearly 40 small college national championships in a variety of men’s and women’s sports, while more than 400 Knights have earned All-American or national academic honors.

After receiving regional accreditation and provisional NCAA Division III membership during the summer of 2012, Southern Virginia University made history by accepting an invitation to join the Capital Athletic Conference effective July 1, 2013.

Southern Virginia is now the only university offering a Division III athletic experience coupled with an LDS environment.
