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, please click the link below for the corresponding team. You can email me if you have any problems or questions!

Sign-ups start today and go on until August 30. Time slots do fill up fast so make sure to join the groupme’s of the team(s) you are interested in and get your team started!

Thanks so much and War Eagle!
