Intramural Sports

The purpose of the Intramural Sports program is to provide exercise, recreation, and fun to our participants in a relaxed, yet structured environment. Intramural Sports enhance the academic experience by promoting and reinforcing leadership qualities, teamwork, personal accomplishment, mutual respect, integrity, competition and recreation, as well as skill and exercise. Everyone is encouraged to play to the best of their abilities. The genuine value of Intramural Sports comes from the camaraderie experienced with other participants and staff of the program.

Club Sports

The purpose of the Club Sports program is to provide opportunities for self-organized and self-run university chartered student organizations that are sponsored by the Department of Student Involvement. They are designed to serve individual interests in different sports and recreational activities, and can be competitive, non-competitive or instructional in nature.
