get in the game
Whether your outdoor passion is skiing and snowboarding (yes, it really does snow in parts of North Carolina), rodeo or water polo, there's a thriving club or intramural team for you to join so you can pursue your physical faves with others.
Intramural sports include basketball, bowling, racquetball, softball, and 4-on-4 flag football, with intramural leagues and special events for players of all skill levels.
Club sports include organizations devoted to 47 different sports, ranging from aikido to badminton, fencing to roller hockey, cricket, rowing, table tennis, Ultimate Frisbee (the men's team won the National Championships in 1999), wrestling, and more.
If it's fresh air you crave, you'll love Outdoor Adventures , a university-based group sponsoring affordable adventure trips like backpacking, kayaking and camping. If you want to practice in a controlled environment before hitting a whitewater rapid or difficult trail, you can take a recreation workshop before committing to a trip.
get fit, stay fit

NC State University athletes don't just rock it on the field, court, mat, lane, course, ring, range and track. They also rock it in the classroom with GPAs that land them on the ACC honor roll. More than 500 student-athletes compete in 23 varsity sports at NC State.
