Getting involved: Intramurals and school spirit

As spring break draws to a close, it’s time to get back into the swing of school and cozy back into that schedule of yours. However, maybe the routine gets to you and you need something to be different aside from schoolwork and classes.

There’s plenty of ways to get involved on your campus and this post will cover getting involved through intramural sports and other school spirit events.

Intramural sports…

Intramural sports are great way to get involved on campus, meet new friends and stay in shape. The types of sports offered to students include plenty of variety, from ultimate frisbee to curling and many others in between. To get involved in intramural sports all you have to do is find a number of people (depending on the sport), register the team with your campus intramural office, or in UMD’s case, IMLeagues.com, and pay the fee if your school charges one.

School spirit…

Going to campus sporting events are another fun way to get involved on campus and share some school spirit/pride with your peers. At UMD, many of you know that our D1 hockey team is huge here. However, UMD offers free attendance to students to many of the other successful sports teams such as, women’s soccer, volleyball, football and many more. You can find information about the team’s schedules on posters posted around campus, the athletics website (click here) and the athletic office on campus.

Though these obviously aren’t the only ways to get involved on your campus, they are two really good options that are definitely worth looking into! Keep an eye out for more “Getting involved” posts on other ways to get involved on campus.

Hope you all had a wonderful and safe spring break! Check back next Monday for a new post covering a completely new topic!
