Athletic activities have been a large part of the lives of women at Iowa State throughout its history. When intercollegiate activities did not exist, the Women's Athletic Association supervised a wide variety of sports clubs for women. After Title IX became law in 1972, women could participate in athletic activities that were officially sanctioned by the university. Today, Iowa State offers many opportunities for women to remain active, including intramurals, Recreation Services, and other physical activities.
