Bowling refers to a series of sports or leisure activities in which a player rolls or throws a bowling ball. In indoor bowling, the target is usually to knock over pins. It is often played on a flat wooden or other synthetic surfaces.

Bowling at CMU:

The bowling class meets at the Student Activity Center's recently renovated bowling alley, ULanes. Students can take the beginner or intermediate class depending on their previous experience and should check with the current instructor or department secretary if they are unsure. Students bowl every day and have expert instructors evaluate their form and technique on an individual basis.

Scoring, pin selection, grain patterns and aiming are a few of the many topics covered. Course fees are required to cover shoe rental and facility use so no personal items are necessary to register, but they are certainly welcome. Classes meet twice a week for 50 minutes. There are many sections available during both semesters to fit your schedule because it is one of our most popular classes.
