Intramural Sports

Intramural Sports offer sports opportunities within the College community. Sports include flag football, basketball, soccer, volleyball, kickball, softball, ultimate disc, table tennis and badminton.  Championship T-shirts are awarded to the winners of all teams and individual sport competitions.  While most intramural leagues are based on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus, the intramural sports department hosts events on all of our campuses.  All event dates and activities can be located in the Student Life office and on posters around campus. 

All current students, faculty and staff are eligible to participate in these fun, organized competitive sports, regardless of the campus where they attend class or work.  Opportunities are available for students to participate in all phases of the Intramural Sports Program, including planning, organizing, competing and officiating. Seminole State College is a member of (NIRSA) the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association. For more information, visit the Intramural Sports website or call 407.708.2091.

First Generation Freshmen

The First Generation Freshmen Program provides scholarships, mentoring and other assistance to first-generation students to help them achieve their goals. Approximately 50 students are selected each academic year for this need-based program. First Generation Freshmen Program students receive a scholarship of $1000 per semester (Fall and Spring terms) for two years to attend Seminole State. The First Generation Freshmen Program also helps students transition to college while providing a sense of community on campus through shared classes. Students are also offered tutoring, mentoring, field trips and assistance with financial planning and budgeting.

To qualify, students must:

  • Be identified as a first-generation college student (neither parent has received a bachelor's degree);
  • Be identified as a first-time-in-college student (have not previously attended college);
  • Demonstrate financial need (as determined by the FAFSA);
  • Agree to participate in cohort activities per semester.

The First Generation Freshmen Program is provided in part by a generous gift from Wayne M. Densch Charities. For more information, visit the First Generation Freshmen website or call 407.708.2897.
