Intercollegiate Athletics

Believing that physical activity contributes to personal health and well-being, the University provides many opportunities for participation in athletic events. A full program of intercollegiate and intramural competition, as well as facilities on campus for recreation, provides the opportunity and stimulus for active participation for all students. (See information on the intramural program under Recreational Services.)
