Intramurals and Recreation

The Intramurals and Recreation Department offers you a full program of organized competition in a number of events throughout the year. Intramural sports include volleyball, basketball, football, soccer, and dodgeball. Intramural activities emphasize group spirit and the enjoyment of sports in a less competitive context. Club teams may be formed under the joint auspices of the Athletics Department and the Student Development Office.
