Establishing a legacy in the region, the NYUAD Athletics, Intramural, and Recreation department is helping to "inspire the bodies and minds of future global leaders through excellence in athletics."
With the benefit of experience behind them, athletes and coaches provide a complete range of physical opportunities for the NYUAD student athlete as well as the greater NYUAD community. Programs span competitive intercollegiate, intramural, recreational and club levels in addition to a number of physical education classes on offer each semester.
"I can't emphasize enough the importance that Athletics played during my time at NYUAD. The breadth of opportunities offered by the department, combined with its highly motivated members, allows everyone within the NYUAD community to surpass themselves both mentally and physically on a daily basis. More importantly, though, Athletics serves as a powerful catalyst of community building. This is, to me, its most meaningful purpose."
