Get your friends, neighbors, and classmates together for the biggest intramural sports competition Whittier College has to offer.

Started in 1991, SportsFest is a 3-day competition full of games, fun, and rivalry, and where T-shirts and serious bragging rights are up for grabs. Loosely based on the Olympics, teams comprised of students, faculty, and staff come together each November to build community spirit and participate in events that include:

  • traditional sporting events (soccer, dodge ball, etc.),
  • alternative competitions (talent show, poker, video games), and​
  • service events (Red Cross blood drive, canned food drive, etc.)

SportsFest is open to ALL Whittier students - athletes and non-athletes, residential and commuter students. To survive the competition, teams must achieve best overall scores in events and show spirit. Good sportsmanship is also awarded at a closing ceremony.  

This year, the SportsFest competition will take place on November 21st - 22nd. Captain's Meetings will start in October. Stop by the Residential Life or LEAP Office for more information.
