Drew Has One of the 50 Best Intramural Programs in the U.S.
Bestcolleges.com cites the program’s inclusiveness and benefits.
December 2015 – The intramural sports program at Drew University is being lauded as one of the 50 best in the nation.
Bestcolleges.com included Drew’s program in its list of the 50 Best Colleges for Intramural Sports. The list was compiled after the website examined hundreds of intramural sports programs at colleges across the U.S.
Key criteria included the efficiency of the intramural organization, its facilities and the number of sports offered. Drew offers 14 intramural sports, including flag football, dodgeball, badminton and softball (see full list below).
“In planning activities centered on inclusion, Drew aims to promote equality and opportunity for all students,” the Bestcolleges report noted. “Drew promotes the following four primary benefits of joining intramural sports: stress relief, exercise, leadership development and the opportunity to meet people.”
Kerry Klug, campus recreation coordinator at Drew, echoed that sentiment, adding that intramural activities are open to those of all levels of experience, athleticism and skill.
“We make it fun,” Klug said. “I call it ‘casually competitive,’ because yeah, you’re playing a game, but no one out there is a superstar—they’re just there to have fun.”
