Intramurals offer a wide variety of competitive sports for students not participating in the University's varsity athletic teams. These exciting sports programs include flag football, softball, basketball, volleyball, and ultimate Frisbee, just to name a few.

Among these are teamwork, trust, camaraderie, and leadership.

FYE Mentors

 

The FYE Mentor program allows upperclassmen to mentor the incoming freshmen through their First Year Experience class. These FYE Mentors build relationships with their "Mentees" and walk with them through their first semester of college.
 
If you have any questions about the FYE program or becoming a FYE Mentor, feel free to contact Billy Watson.

 

One-On-One Mentors

 

The one-on-one mentor program pairs freshman and transfer students to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. The mentee will not only have a friend on campus, but also someone who can help answer questions and navigate campus life.
