Student Running on Track


Having the opportunity to participate in both formal and informal recreational activities is an important part of everyday life.

The Intramural program at St. John’s University provides formal recreational sports opportunities to all students, faculty, staff and administrators by offering an opportunity for interesting and rewarding competition in men’s, women’s and co-rec activities. The program offers a variety of activities that the entire university community can participate in regardless of preference or athletic ability.

Campus Recreation arranges schedules and playing space, provides equipment and furnishes student officials. Officials will be provided for the team sports, when necessary, by the Campus Recreation Department. For competition in individual sports, the contestants are responsible for officiating their own matches.
