Oglethorpe Intramurals Program
Steve Schmidt Recreation Center
Oglethorpe's intramural and recreational programs offer all students, faculty and staff the opportunity to enjoy the fun and participation of team sports and outdoor activities. The 2011-2012 intramurals line-up includes flag football and tennis (fall), basketball, whiffle ball and dodgeball (winter) with the spring season featuring a new program: the Petrelympics. Intramural athletics are popular with both men and women and all students are welcome to participate. For those inclined to individual competitions, a ping-pong championship and an eight-ball pool championship will also be on the horizon in the coming year. Also, be sure to check out details about the exciting new race for the Petrel Cup below.
The Outdoor Program offers Oglethorpe students seasonal opportunities to travel off-campus and enjoy outdoor adventures in the beautiful landscapes of North Georgia and the surrounding region. A September kayaking adventure, a winter snow-tubing/skiing trip and a spring kayaking/whitewater experience will be among this year's outdoor offerings.
