Sports

We believe in the life of the body as well as the life of the mind.

Divinity School students participate in a range of intramural sports through the University's Intramural Sport Program. Last year, the Div School competed in coed and men’s flag football, co-ed volleyball, co-ed and men’s basketball, coed indoor and outdoor soccer, and coed ultimate Frisbee. These teams are both competitive and fun—a difficult balance in intramural sports—exemplified by our semi-finalist volleyball team, the Exorcists, our perennial finalist ultimate Frisbee team, and our second place flag football team, the Div School Devils.

Most academic years see a Faculty-Student sports competition or two, including softball, basketball, and bowling.
