Service-Learning Experiences


                            Service-Learning Experiences

The Department of Recreation and Park Administration holds as a value the provision of service-learning experiences for students as an imperative aspect of their professional preparation. Not only do these experiences aid the student, but they also impact patrons, agencies and communities. We believe that recreation services have the potential to enhance the lives of those we involve in our programs! Take a look at some of these service-learning experiences that have involved our students and consider how much of an impact you would see on the resume of our students:
