Feeling nervous about meeting new people in college? Worried about slacking off and being inactive? Consider joining an intramural sports team! Intramural sports provide students with an organized way to play their favorite games, and they’re also a lot of fun. Most colleges offer numerous options for people of all skill levels that include common sports like football and basketball, and some not-so-common sports like arm wrestling and inner tube water polo.

Senior Ryan Hill, who is planning on attending The Ohio State University and playing intramural volleyball, said he’s playing because, “It helps you get involved in the community and gives you a team aspect that helps you grow as a person. It also keeps you active and gives you something to do.”

In college, I’m planning on playing flag football and joining the water ski team, and several of those around me are planning on doing something similar. If you’re interested in finding out what sports your school offers, most schools include a list on their websites, and several of the teams have social media pages for more information. I highly recommend getting involved in college!
