Sports Council



Coordinator: Ashrith Rao

The Sports Council consists of club sporting teams that compete against club teams of other universities throughout the nation. Our sports clubs provide a great opportunity for student athletes who have chosen not to play on Division I teams, but still desire to play, compete and continue their love for the game. The Sports clubs conduct regular practices, travel to and host competitions and host events for their members and the community. Many of our Sports clubs and individual members have been successful in ranking nationally.

Bowling Club

The purpose of this organization is to bring students together to interact through a game of bowling. This would allow them to gather together outside of an academic setting and provide students with another option in their extra-curricular activities. Furthermore, it can bring students with different career tracks together and connect them over a friendly game. Our goal is to promote a healthier lifestyle through improving hand-eye coordination and strengthening muscles. This can be an easy way for students to get their daily workouts in. In addition to the physical health benefits, it would also provide mental health benefits. Bowling can be relaxing and stress relieving, understanding that students always have their plate full with school work.
