Endowed Naming Opportunities
The Outdoor Adventure Program
supports the development of healthy, balanced lifestyles for the University community through outdoor recreation activities. The program provides fun and safe experiences and trips that develop technical skills and cultivate the personal development of participants and student staff. Programming is adjusted to every person's skill level in order to challenge each person to grow. Teamwork, skill development, personal growth and appreciation of the outdoors are promoted.
Club and intramural sports support the goal of providing students excellence in academics, athletics and activities. The program provides a variety of team-building options for students, providing enrichment to a vibrant population that has doubled in size since 2007.
Club sports help bridge the gap between intramural sports and varsity athletics, allowing participants to enjoy extramural competition without the pressures of highly structured varsity sports. Clubs are student-directed, with members assuming responsibility for organizing contests and fundraising activities, and are a great opportunity to develop leadership skills. Most club teams compete in leagues against other local and regional teams and some even compete nationally.
The intramural sports program
offers many semi-structured athletic options and tournaments each academic year, providing fun, competitive and rewarding opportunities to students who may not wish to take part in club or varsity sports.
The Intramural Cup is a tradition, begun in 2006, to encourage teams and individuals to participate in as many intramural activities as possible. To be eligible, teams must maintain the same team name for each league and tournament they register for throughout the year.
