UNC is one of 1,200 universities in the country using REC*IT, a mobile app associated with the website IMLeagues. REC*IT is offering a tuition stipend of up to $20,000 to one lucky winner.
Bill Goa, director of campus recreation, said IMLeagues — created by a UNC MBA student — is the website UNC Campus Recreation uses to better submit information and increase communication to reduce the amount of paper in the office.
“As an effort to get people to sign up for the app, they give kind of like a lottery or incentive, so IMLeagues is offering one year of tuition for one person throughout the entire country,” Goa said.
Goa said IMLeagues is free for students and campus recreation to use.
“IMLeagues helps teams register,” Goa said. “It’s a communication aspect. You go to a website and get your time to play and updates your rosters and things like that.”
Justin Ford, director of intramural sports, said while IMLeagues and REC*IT work together, they are two separate companies. No money is coming from UNC.
