What to expect: 

REXPO, sponsored by REC Club, creates an opportunity for professionals to share their career experiences, build student awareness of the importance of leisure and recreation to well-being, and share job and internship opportunities in the fields of parks, recreation, tourism and event management, and therapeutic recreation. Each semester two dozen+ professionals in the field commit to joining this event! Attendees will have the opportunity to network with current professionals, learn about internship opportunities, and explore the meaning behind careers in leisure services. This event is in-person with professionals, and all UWL students are welcome to attend!
