Full-time, day undergraduate students on the Main Campus participate in our intramural and club sport programs.
Pride Recreation embodies intramural and informal recreation programs. Intramural sports are offered for men, women, and co-ed divisions. Competition is in the form of leagues, tournaments, and/or special events each semester. The programs are offered based on student interest and the availability of resources and facilities. Informal recreation is offered to the entire Widener University student body.
