Historical Note

Until 1964 intramural sports were administered by the Health, Physical Education and Recreation Department. In 1964, the Intramural Athletics office was created under the Vice President for Student Affairs. In 1969, it was renamed Intramural Sports and Recreative Services.

The MSU Sailing Club is part of the Recreational Sports and Fitness Services Program that offers students opportunities to engage in both recreational and competitive sailing. The MSU Sailing Club has provided sailing experiences to students since its inception in the Spring of 1946, growing throughout the 1970s into the 2000s, and continuing to make an impact on the present student body.
