Athletics & Recreation
From its famous winged football helmet and maize-and-blue uniforms — one of the most recognizable icons in American sports — to its domination on the world stage in the Olympics, the University of Michigan intercollegiate athletics program has a long tradition of winning and a legacy of championship teams.
There’s also no spirit like U-M spirit. Whenever you see the maize-and blue take the field in The Big House, you’ll soar along with 100,000 other cheering Wolverines. And because most athletics events are free for students (with a few exceptions), you’ll find it easy to become a highly active fan. At the same time, this is a place where you can be more than just a spectator. With more than 30 club and 25 intramural sports, you can strive for victory on numerous teams.
