On December 9th, recreation administration students in RA 101 got the opportunity to showcase the exciting projects they’ve been working hard on all semester long. Over 20 students, representing all options within the department, participated in the poster presentations.

Participants were able to network and learn about some of the controversial issues facing the recreation and leisure industry in our modern society, and to relax in an enjoyable atmosphere as the fall 2014 semester comes to a close.

Did you know that the recreation industry is one of the fastest growing careers in the job market? Graduates in the department go on to work for private and public sectors, nonprofits and governmental agencies all over the world. The department currently has five emphasis options, including: adventure recreation and tourism, commercial recreation and event planning, community recreation and youth services, sports and entertainment facility management and therapeutic recreation.

Congratulations to all these students for a wonderful semester. We can’t wait to see where these Live Well scholars will go in their careers! For more information on the Department of Recreation Administration, please check out their website.
