Intramurals are an important part of campus life. You’ll have the opportunity to get involved in a variety of competitive and structured team sports. Intramurals are a great way to combine physical exercise and social interaction with your friends.

You could also participate in tournaments such as ping pong, foosball, pool, spades, racquetball, frisbee golf, and chess, just to name a few.
