Full-time, day undergraduate students on the Main Campus participate in our intramural and club sport programs.
Intramural sports provide students with a fun-filled, competitive atmosphere. Intramural sports allow students to show off their skills in a variety of sports that are not offered on the varsity or club sport level.
