Sports and fitness


Athletes and other active students stay in shape in the Korver Weight Room and through heavy use of the DeWitt Physical Fitness Center's indoor track, courts and exercise facilities.


Approximately one-fourth of Northwestern students get involved in intramurals annually. We offer 15 sports for men and women, including badminton, basketball, flag football, indoor soccer, racquetball and volleyball.
