Despite our reputation for top academics, you won’t be studying all the time! You’ll get plenty of exercise playing a sport you choose from 1:30 to 3 pm pm, four days each week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday).

If you are a boarding student (living in a campus dormitory), you must take a sport. If you’re a day student (not living on campus), you may choose whether or not to take a sport. However, you’ll need to decide this before the Summer Session begins. And if you participate, you must attend all sports meetings for the entire session. (You may not attend sports some of the time.)

Certain sports may fill quickly, so you should list three choices on your online application. You’ll be assigned to a sport for the first half of Summer Session; you can change to another sport for the second half of the summer if you wish. (These changes are scheduled with the athletic director at the halfway point of Summer Session.)
