Intramurals

The Intramural Program at Georgia Highlands College is dedicated to providing opportunity for each student, faculty, or staff member to participate in a variety of wellness, fitness and sports activities.† Activities are designed to accommodate all levels of skill.† While most events involve competition, the Intramural Program emphasizes and promotes participation, sportsmanship, social interaction, and healthy exercise.†We will provide not only structured and traditional programs, but we will seek out new programs and activities to meet the needs of the ever-changing campus community.

Through our programs and activities, we strive to promote lifelong health and wellness of the campus community. We anticipate that our programs and activities will provide a positive and healthy outlet for stress. We will assist Georgia Highlands College in the overall development of students by providing leadership opportunities to both participants and student employees. Additionally, we aim to unite the student body and serve as a retention tool for the College.
