All students must receive credit for two semesters of work in physical education deemed satisfactory by the Department of Physical Education. As of the Advent 2010 semester, student completion or non-completion of required physical education courses is recorded on the transcript on a pass/fail basis.
Beginning with the class graduating in 2012, students must have earned one PE credit before the end of the freshman year, and a second PE credit before the end of the sophomore year. Exceptions may be made by petition to the College Standards Committee. Each class generally consists of two scheduled periods each week of one hour in length. (These courses do not count toward the thirty-two academic courses required for graduation).
Participation in a year-long program of varsity (or club) athletics in one sport yields two PhEd credits.
Among the objectives of this program are:
1. To develop an enthusiasm for playing some game well so that it may be enjoyed both in college and later life.
2. To develop agility and coordination of mind, eye, and body.
3. To grow in understanding of and develop skills in maintaining physical fitness for daily living.
The Department of Physical Education offers instruction in various activities throughout the year governed by student-expressed interest.
The intramural program for men offers competition in touch football, volleyball, basketball, racquetball, golf, ping pong, pool, floor hockey, team handball, equestrian, and ultimate frisbee.
Women's intramural athletics include volleyball, basketball, softball, football, soccer, cross country, racquetball, and tennis.
