NIRSA DAY - National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association

Every year, on the day commemorating NIRSA’s founding — February 22, 1950 — NIRSA Day gathers together schools, companies, and associations across North America to celebrate campus recreation. This day honors the vision set in motion by Dr. William Wasson and his esteemed colleagues at the first NIRSA Conference: to celebrate health, activity, competition, and inclusivity. On that day, 11 Historically Black Colleges & Universities formed what we know today as NIRSA.
