Intramurals

Intramural sports are offered to SOWELA students through McNeese State University as a fun way for students to stay active, unwind from academic life, and build lifelong relationships. These extracurricular skills help to develop teamwork, communication, and leadership skills. Participation in intramural sports has been developed to provide students with the opportunity to engage recreationally as well as socially outside of the classroom.
