Life as an HRCS Student
For Incoming and Current Students
Life as a Health, Recreation & Community Services student means you’re on the move. In a Wellness Recreation Center classroom; volunteering at a local nonprofit; joining in -- or coordinating -- outdoor adventures; studying quietly in the lounge overlooking the WRC pools; reviewing an assignment with a professor.
All that activity needs support. Whether it’s faculty, professional advisors, staff and resources within the College of Education or across campus, we have what you need.
In the field: From clinics to the community
Getting hands-on through internships are requirements that build your skill base. They're an important part of this nationally accredited program.
Examples of recreation, tourism and nonprofit leadership internship experiences include:
- YWCA and YMCA summer programs
- United Nations-related nonprofits
- Nonprofit child care centers
- Tourism bureaus and events centers
- Local foundations
