Intramural Team Point System
Most intramural activities are held "for points." Points are earned by individuals and teams for their organizations throughout the academic year. At the end of the year, the organization in each division with the highest point total is recognized with a special award.
Competition for intramural team points is held within divisions. Divisions are fraternity, residence hall, independent, women, and co-rec.
If a person transfers from one organization to another during the year, all points previously acquired by that individual shall remain with the original organization.
