D1 programs in the US?

Hey! I'm a junior considering playing sports in college, but I'm not sure which colleges have D1 programs. Can anyone provide a list or some examples of D1 schools in America? Thanks so much!

Hey there! It's great to see that you're interested in playing sports at the collegiate level. While there are over 350 colleges and universities that participate in Division I athletics, I can provide you with some notable examples to get started. Keep in mind that these schools may vary in size, location, and competitiveness, but all have D1 sports programs:

1. Ivy League schools - e.g., Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and others

2. Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) - e.g., Duke University, University of Miami, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and others

3. Big 10 - e.g., University of Michigan, Ohio State University, Penn State University, and others

4. Pac-12 - e.g., Stanford University, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), University of Southern California (USC), and others

5. Southeastern Conference (SEC) - e.g., University of Florida, University of Georgia, University of Alabama, and others

6. Big 12 - e.g., University of Texas at Austin, University of Oklahoma, Kansas State University, and others

7. Big East - e.g., Georgetown University, Villanova University, and others

This is by no means an exhaustive list; there are many more schools with D1 programs across the United States. You can use the NCAA's school directory (https://web3.ncaa.org/directory/) to look up specific schools, or filter by sport and division. Remember to also consider factors like academics, campus culture, and location when looking into schools to make sure they're a good fit for you overall.

Good luck on your college search and athletic journey!
