What is VU Rec?

VU Rec is a division of the Office of Student Engagement that seeks to provide the Vanguard community with competitive and non-competitive opportunities that promote physical activity, personal development, and ultimately a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

What are intramurals?

Opportunities for the VU community to participate in team sports and activities on a competitive level. All skill levels are welcome. The overall success of the program is dependent on the individual’s commitment to the activity by showing up for each scheduled contest and playing to one’s best ability in a sportsmanlike manner. Five sports with multiple leagues are offered every year.
