Iglehart Hall gym will be open by appointment and with limited capacity. Fitness classes will be hybrid whenever possible. The Hodson Boathouse will open for recreational use when weather conditions permit in late March or early April.
The hope is to offer Kunai, as well as three types of intramural activities: team sports, smaller group sports, and activities appropriate for remote students. The intramural schedule this spring will likely be structured quite differently from the schedules used in recent years, but we do intend to continue to feature our five regular intramural teams.
Fencing, sailing, and rowing are unlikely to compete intercollegiately, but these teams may meet for internal practices pending agreement upon suitable safety regulations. If these teams do meet to practice, the specific activities undertaken may be limited.
The gym will be open by appointment and with limited capacity. Fitness classes will continue online. The boathouse will open for recreational use when weather conditions permit in late March or early April.
We will continue to feature team competitions, starting with our Anything Goes competition, in which any physical exercise counts for a team point. We will also feature fitness challenges, small group personal training, a basketball shooting contest, an e-sport tournament, and more.
Students will be sent an event schedule each month which will allow them to RSVP for a certain number of events of their choosing. As these events will have attendee caps, RSVPing early will help you get your first choice of activities for that month. Some examples of these activities may include:
Crafts: Solar printing, decoupaging keepsake boxes, “Bob Ross” paint night, dorm decorations, vision boards, stress relieving shower fizzes, flower arranging, paint pouring, Kintsugi pottery, card making, and letter writing
Activities: Pre-portioned wine/chocolate/coffee/tea tastings with jazz, laser tag, outdoor movies, scavenger hunts, egg hunts, paint balloons and darts, and line dancing
For essay writing periods, we will also be sending each class care packages (whether they are on campus or off campus), and we will be planning some special events to help ease stress.
Virtual programming will continue. Some possible examples include: virtual escape rooms and murder mysteries, trivia nights, GooseChase challenges, dance lessons, open mics, virtual pet visits, and movie watch parties.
We will be offering more weekly activity kit giveaways for you to complete on your own or with friends over a Zoom call. Look forward to a wide variety of kits, such as painting and watercolor, leather working, flower arranging and mini plantings, paint pouring, all-natural tie dye and indigo dying, wood model building, card making, decoupage, kombucha, and many more. We will also be raffling off various food and beverage tastings, such as chocolate, coffee, tea, and bubble tea. In addition to cross-campus trivia nights and GooseChase challenges with high-stake prizes, we also hope to offer some escape rooms, murder mystery events, cooking competitions, and dance lessons from professionals. And there will be more open mics and movie watch parties.
