Do you have a limit on how many people can play in a pick-up basketball game?
are you allowing students to spot each other in the weight room
is it first come first serve or do you register online
Which facilities have swimming pools?
Howard has a swimming pool
Who share facilities with athletics?
I think that will be the biggest thing is how much will the staff buy in to cleaning their own areas especially if we are talking about student employees being responsible for that in the intramural and common areas. That has come up in terms needing any training to be able to do so or even the risk of exposure.
We share with athletics as well
We did sports Trivia and students loved it
What are some Virtual Programs that have worked for your institutions
Anyone doing tutorials?
I've done IG live fitness videos on proper techniques for less experience students who want to workout

Yes, more engaging activities for HBCU to attend
I agree, I think integration for program areas too. It's always a very small crew and offerings for marketing and outdoor folks. Last time there were only 2 sessions for me.
