One may think that being ‘bogged down’ by an engineering curriculum and involvement in various organizations would leave no time for any fun–but this is not the case!

For the second consecutive fall, some of my closest friends and I have got together an intramural flag football team for the 7 on 7 Men’s Competitive League, and it is always an absolute blast on game days.

I strongly believe that a good balance between studies/involvement and recreation is essential for any engineering–or any discipline, really–student’s success. It is a great way to unwind from the inevitable stress of day-to-day college life, and also a great way to stay active and to just have fun with some friends.

In addition to intramural sports, it’s not too difficult to work time
into my schedule to make it to Ping Recreational Center for pick-up games of basketball once a week or so. Like I said earlier, when faced with what can be a stressful curriculum, physical activities and a little competition go a long way
