Whichever you choose, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with roommates or suitemates and form the kind of friendships that living together at Chowan brings.

Many students participate in intramurals because they want to play sports, but not at the intercollegiate level. They can compete with their friends, improve their skills, and participate in a wide variety of sports. Many students try to win the “Intramural Champion” T-shirt. Most importantly, intramurals at CU encourage students to show good sportsmanship, develop leadership skills and improve overall wellness.
Some popular intramurals include:
Outdoor (sand) volleyball
Powder Puff Flag Football
All students are automatically members of the Student Government Association (SGA). The SGA provides students the opportunity to participate in the operation of the university, to gain experience in democratic procedures, and to become actively involved in the planning and implementation of university-sponsored activities.
At Chowan University, students have the opportunity to develop leadership skills, organization skills, teamwork, and communication skill by participating in the Student Government Association (SGA).
The SGA gives students the opportunity to gain experience in the democratic position, understand the operation of Chowan University, and be involved in planning and making university-sponsored activities.
This experience is easily translated to the “real world.” Plus, it looks great on a resume.
