The Department Recreation Management and Therapeutic Recreation hosts two student organizations. Details of the two clubs are:
The R.E.C. Club is a group of Recreation Management students, and
students interested in recreation who gather in a regular basis to
offer opportunities for professional development, service,
fundraising and to create a community among students, faculty, and
professionals involved with recreation management. Each year we
engage in a variety of activities.
In 2014, for example, our first two gatherings focused on
developing our club members professionally by supporting their
attendance at the Wisconsin Parks & Recreation Society Annual
Conference in The Dells. 10 members attended superb
presentations, but more importantly, connected with an incredible
number of professionals! What a great way to become active in the
profession while doing some excellent professional networking.
Our next activity was a bit more local - we took a group hike in
the Hixon Forest area near the University of Wisconsin - La
Crosse. Beautiful weather and an enthusiastic group made this a
fun and relaxing way to remind ourselves of the importance outdoor
recreation has in our daily lives.
Upcoming events for Fall 2014 include: participating in the
Annual Turkey Trot, Bell Ringing for the Salvation Army, and a
rousing game of Dodgeball.
