Summer is upon us and many students are heading home to spend some quality time with their families. But not everybody! Whether you’re enrolled in summer courses or you just want to hang out at the chapter house, it’s important that you keep yourself busy and active. While there are many great clubs and organizations that you can join, we’re going to be talking about the benefits of joining an intramural sports team in this post.

While we’re sad to see some of our clients go, we’ll still be here providing fraternity and sorority members with our college catering services to those that stay behind. To learn more about our food services or if you’re in need of a fraternity or sorority chef, then feel free to give us a call today!

Make New Friends

We know that you’ve formed close bonds with your fraternity brothers or sorority sisters, but what’s wrong with making even more friends on campus? Playing intramural sports is a great opportunity for socializing and hanging out with your peers. And you don’t have to sign up alone! Get a group of your friends and join a team together.

Play the Sport You Love

Only a small percentage of high school athletes end up playing the sport that they love when they get to college. Intramural leagues provide you with an opportunity to keep playing your favorite sport and maintain the skills that you had in high school. Do you have a sport that you’ve always wanted to try? These leagues are a great way to try something new.

Relieves Stress

College is a great time, but, as we all know, it can also get pretty stressful from time to time. You deserve a break from your studies and getting some exercise is a great way to relieve the stress that comes from your studies, especially if you’re taking classes over the summer break.  

Keeps You Healthy

It’s important to keep yourself healthy while you’re away at college. After all, your parents aren’t around to encourage you to stay active and to eat right. Your body wants nutrients and it wants to exercise. Upper Crust has your meal plans covered. We offer fresh and healthy food options through our college catering services, so you can have the peace of mind knowing that you’re following a proper diet. Now you just need to make sure that you’re getting out and getting your body moving and grooving. Not everybody is a gym junkie, so intramural sports is a great option. Not only are you getting the exercise that you need, but you’ll be having a great time while doing it.

Signing up for a league also provides some structure to your schedule, which can be a little bit tricky during the summer months. We highly recommend that you get out there and join a team! Our sorority and fraternity chefs will make sure to keep you nourished so that you can keep up with the others!
