Students are encouraged to become involved in at least one organization or student activity. Playing on a team, joining a club, participating in a musical group or contributing your talents in another way to a meaningful activity can be an important addition to your total educational experience. It also makes college more fun and is a good way to develop friendships.
The athletic departments at Millersville University believe that athletic competition is a desirable and integral part of the educational process for students. All students are encouraged to try out for University athletic teams at the varsity level. Students who are interested in trying out should contact the appropriate head coach for information or watch for announcements posted in the University gymnasiums. Spectators may obtain season schedules for sports in the appropriate men's or women's athletic offices, or call the ticket office (871-5522).
The intramural program is designed to provide opportunity for every student, faculty and staff member at Millersville to participate in sports as regularly as his or her interests, ability and time permit. Each student is encouraged to select one or more sport activities to improve and maintain physical well-being. Students also may develop skills in a variety of activities that may be carried on throughout life and are given a chance to release pent-up tensions in an acceptable manner. Competition is organized on team and individual bases. Teams may represent fraternities, sororities, residence halls, clubs and independents. Ability is relatively unimportant; the basic requisite is a sincere desire to participate.
Much of the social life on campus centers on the Student Memorial Center (SMC) located across from Gordinier Dining Hall on South George Street . The recently expanded/renovated facility has much to offer students and the entire Millersville University community.
