Intramural sports are just one of the ways to release built-up tension from the hustle and bustle of the semester. Basketball, flag football, soccer, volleyball and more are available at CBU throughout the year. These sports are always competitive and fun.

My favorites happen to be basketball and flag football. Every sport at CBU starts off with group prayer, and then my competitive nature takes over. I can run up and down field or court all game long and battle my opponent until the final whistle. I think team sports build comradery and are a great way to stay in shape.

This is my first season of intramural basketball at CBU, and I am enjoying every minute of it.

Another way to relieve stress is by working out. If you haven’t already, you should make your way down to the new Recreation Center in Adams Plaza. It is a great facility with new equipment and plenty of room. The center has cardio machines, weights, a basketball court, racquet ball courts, and even indoor rock climbing. It also has personal trainers who give various workouts and classes throughout the week.

These are just two of the ways to relieve stress on campus, but I’m sure you have your own favorites. If you’re ever at the Rec Center working out, look for me. I’ll probably be the guy standing around running his mouth.
