Student Organizations

Honors Congress:

A message from Reid Carter: 

One of the things we do in the Honors College is offer the opportunity to join different intramural sports with your fellow Honors students. There are a couple intramural leagues the beginning of this semester: co-rec basketball, flag football (both men's and women's), and sand volleyball (both men's and women's).

If you are interested in playing on an Honors Congress team for any of these sports, join a group today.
