• Informal Recreation: Enjoy free time with friends by staying active, playing and having fun. Equipment is available for borrowing when leaving an ID for individual items available at the front desk of Ferris Athletic Center. Campus organizations may also reserve equipment when filling out the equipment check-out order form.

• Intramural Sports: A yearlong residence hall competition based on points is the framework for First Year Students. There will be Blue and Gold divisions based on competitive interests,. Points are awarded for league champions but more importantly on participation and sportsmanship with the name of the winning residence hall placed on a cup displayed in the Ferris Athletic Center. Upperclass teams and groups will also compete in men’s, women’s and co-ed sports with a champion in each sport offered.

• Club Sports: The SGA supports these teams which have a more significant time commitment and level of competition. Club members decide on the coach, schedule matches and generally organize the club with the assistance or guidance of a club advisor. Students are the driving force behind the club offerings. Currently, Rugby, Equestrian, Lacrosse, and Baseball are among the most active clubs. Other club sport offerings are added depending upon student involvement.

• Fitness and Wellness: The recreation program strives to support offerings in classes such as Zumba, Yoga and other drop-in/not for credit opportunities that improve fitness and wellness.
