Yes. Many major universities and smaller schools now scholarship Ultimate Frisbee.http://www.insidecollege.com/reno/Colleges-with-Strength-in-Ultimate-Frisbee/586/list.do
There are basically 3 levels of Ultimate Frisbee. There's high school level, collegiate level, and club level. Collegiate and Club are the one's that are actually legitimate (kind of like college sports and professional sports). College season takes place during the spring semester, with the playoffs running through the end of May, while club starts about halfway through the summer, with playoffs running through to the end of October. High school level takes place in the spring like college does. Keep in mind that Ultimate is year-round (kind of like baseball how there's spring and fallball), but these are the "official" seasons.
No, the inventors actually developed the modern day Frisbee from watching college students toss around pie tins.
Ultimate Frisbee is a lot like football. There are two teams comprised of an equal number of players. The game is usually played on a football field so each team begins in their designated endzone (the field canbe shortened by determining the end zones as certain yard lines). One tea begins with the frisbee and yells out ULITMATE! before launching it to the other team (a lot like a kick off). Once a player of the other team has the frisbee they are only allowed to pivot on one leg (they're not permitted to take any steps) from here, they must throw the frisbee to another player on the team. This continues until a member of the team catches the frisbee in the end zone in which that team scores a point and the process starts over. However, if the frisbee is dropped it makes it an automatic recovery for the other team and the game continues, the same with an interception. If a frisbee is thrown out of bounds it is taken up by the other team from where it left the playing field. The game is over when a certain team has reached the designated amount of points (voted prior to the beginning of the game) or a team forfeits.
Half time is typically at 7, but that's if you are playing up to 13 (regulation). If you are playing up to 11 (what you would play up to if it is supposed to storm) then halftime would be 6. Notice how they are almost half of the total score needed.
Frisbee golf evolved from the flying disk that came into use around the 1900's. College students began playing Frisbee golf around 1960. Dave Dunipace invented the modern Frisbee golf disk in 1983.
Walter Morrison and Warren Franscioni invented a version of the first plastic frisbee in 1948. Morrison continued to work on a basic plastic model for the modern frisbee and called it Pluto Platter. He received design patent 183,626 for a flying toy on September 30, 1958.
According to The New York Times, Frisbee's name came from a Connecticut bakery, Frisbie Pie Co. Also, New England college students often tossed empty pie tins around for fun, referring to it as a "frisbie." There was an old company known as "Frisbie Baking Company." They made pies and college students discovered that using the pie tins they could toss them to each other. Hence the Frisbee.
A major flaw in the electoral college system is that a candidate could win the popular vote, but lose the election, due to the number of votes per state. This occurred between Bush and Gore.
The three most popular college sports in the US are basketball, football and soccer. However there are others, swimming is very competitive, there are also rugby union, lacrosse and volleyball. There are also relatively new sports that are popular, such as Ultimate Frisbee.
The Frisbee got its name from the Frisbie Pie Company. The bakery was located in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The pies were popular among college students at Yale University. Legend has it that students would eat the pies and then throw the pie tins around like Frisbees-as indeed they were.
