For the past two years I have been a part of University Recreation as an Intramural Official. I originally applied for the postion as a Sophomore looking for a part-time job to get some extra spending money but since it has become much more than a job. Since joining the URec team I have officiated flag football, basketball, and softball, as well as participating in these sports with many others. Officiating has relit my passion for sports as being able to play a crucial role in these high-stake (for the students participating in them at least) sporting events. It has given me the opportunity to be a student of these games all over again, from a different perspective. Not only have I had a blast officiating but I have been able to meet a ton of great people. Being able to go through training and officiate with so many people has given me a sense of community with Intramurals and at the student activity center.
