Intramural Athletics 
The University offers a program of intramural athletic activities to all members of the University community–students, faculty and staff, at all levels. Competition in the various sports is available at both the individual and team levels.
Although instruction in the rules and skills particular to the various games is provided, such instruction is not the major emphasis; rather, the program’s main focus is the cultivation of the needed skills for recreational purposes and on the joy and camaraderie available in such activities. Thus, enjoyment and safety – not the level of skill – are the major considerations. Among the recreational athletic activities included in the intramural program are basketball, volleyball and flag football, as well as various one-day individual competitions. Other activities can be arranged, based on the interests of students, faculty and staff.
