The dedication of the Mary Ann and Harold Perper Intramural Field was held just in time for the flag football team to stomp the fresh grounds.
Lynn has named the intramural field after the Perper family in recognition of their continued generosity and kind donations.
Not only have the Perpers given students a chance to play club sports on a brand new field, but they are supporting Lynn’s 2020 master plan that includes new residence halls and other exciting improvements to campus.
“Intramural flag football is basically a friendly game of kids that either played football in high school, in college or just enjoy the game, and want to come out and play,” said Karla Rosario, sophomore.
All students can participate in a friendly game of flag football every Monday and Wednesday night on the intramural field under the lights, which all students are encouraged to participate in.
Like traditional football games, the six teams play on a schedule with a set of seeds and continue onto the playoffs. Since the new addition of the scoreboard and lights, the teams are happily continuing to play and have fun after the sun goes down.
“The lights are a lot better and the fact that we are playing on a bigger field has its ups and downs, but overall it’s great,” said Alex Embree, sophomore.
Embree and his group of friends created their team last year and have thoroughly enjoyed playing football together while still being competitive.
“It’s a lot of fun especially since I never got to play football competitively,” said Alex Rogoff, sophomore. “It allows me to really understand the concept of the game.”
Campus Recreation has a sign-up sheet for students who are interested in signing up. The creation of this field would not have been possible without the gracious support from the Perper family.
