Getting physically active helps boost energy, mental health and even help in academics. At KIU we motivate our students to do sports. We believe in the motto “Sports for All” and encourage everyone to try something new. KIU offers both beginner classes and coaching for those who wish to participate in sports. Sport is an arena that provides leadership. Further it involves volunteering opportunities for students in addition to team building.
The benefits of engaging in sports are multiple and research suggests that active students were more likely to get a higher grade and were 10% above the expectation of inactive students. Active students were more confident about finding a job shortly after graduation. Further active students also felt less socially isolated, with few feeling left out or that people didn’t know them. Hence KIU sports unit is very active, inviting students to participate in the number of activities available at KIU
