Let’s face it, not all of us were meant to be college athletes. For those of us out there who seek athletic activity purely as enjoyment, Lake State offers Intramural activities open to all students. With intramurals there is no harsh workout regimen and the schedules fit better with most students’ schedules. So if you were an athlete in High School and you feel as though Collegiate Varsity Sports are not for you, check out the intramurals. You will find that they are a fun, fast-paced and exciting way to release competitive energy.
The Intramural Sports at LSSU include:
- Flag Football
- Floor Hockey
- Indoor Soccer
- Outdoor Soccer
- Wally Ball
Other Options for Students
The Norris Center has a dance studio, weight lifting equipment and a pool. At the pool you could swim laps, play water-polo, or water basketball. After the swimming, you could head over to the dive pool and practice those diving skills.
Some of our student organizations are athletically oriented as well, such as: the Cheerleading Club, Kuk Sool Won (Korean Martial Arts Club), Men’s Club Hockey, Superior Swing Dance Club and the Professional Recreation Club.
