Sports and fitness

Northwestern’s campus and the Orange City community offer lots of options for students who like to stay in shape. There are pick-up basketball and soccer games on campus throughout the week, and students make heavy use of the indoor track, weight room and fitness facilities in the DeWitt Physical Fitness Center. About 1/4 of our students are on intramural teams. Orange City has several fitness centers and walking trails, an outdoor pool and 18-hole golf course.


Students can stay active with several intramural sports for every season, including:

8-ball and 9-ball Indoor soccer Tennis
Badminton Pickleball Volleyball
Basketball Racquetball Wallyball
Flag football Softball
Foosball Table tennis  

Or, if a mental workout is what you’re after, we also offer Chess and Rook competitions.
