Winter is thawing away, so it’s time for us humans to run around and be active again. Gather a collection of your friends and classmates to join these upcoming Intramural Sports leagues taking place on campus. You'll be able to get active and enjoy reconnecting with one another.

Unless otherwise specified, you can register in advance at the Intramural Sports office in the Campus Rec Center or the Rec & Wellness Center. Additional details are available online.
