Sportsfest

Since the beginning, Sportfest focuses on building community within and among residential areas at the University of Miami.
SportsFest began in the Spring semester of 1986, when the “Honors Residential College” (Hecht) challenged “The Residential College” (Stanford) to a sporting contest. As additional residential colleges were added they were invited to participate. Sportsfest, a collaborative effort among the Division of Student Affairs, the Department of Wellness & Recreation and the Department of Housing & Residential Life, builds a sense of community among students and strives to develop teamwork and sportsmanship skills. The event brings together 2,000 members of the UM community for a weekend of recreational sports and other activities.
