Afternoon Activities

Kimball Union students are required to participate in an afternoon activity or sport each trimester. Two of these are required to be "team building" in nature, and can be chosen from arts activities or competitive athletics. All new students are required to participate in a "team building" activity or sport in their first trimester.

The Arts Department offers the following activities:

Theater (by application)
Plays: The fall play is produced by the theater activity group. The winter musical uses the talents of the theater activity, but is also open to those taking part in sports or other activities. The spring plays are usually One Acts, directed and often written by students, and performed in the Campus Center great room.
