The activities on Wednesday and during the morning on Thursday are exclusively for RSM 242 and 396 students. The remaining activities including a networking lunch and career fair open to all RSM students who have registered.

The purpose of the symposium is to provide an opportunity for Recreation and Sport Management students and industry experts to network, while also providing the students an opportunity to develop professionally and find internships/jobs in the field.

The RSM faculty plan to host this event annually to assist Recreation and Sport Management students in this highly competitive work market. Professional development activities include sessions on resume writing , interviewing, and professional expectations. The conference will include members of the Eastern District of the South Carolina Recreation and Parks Association in addition to professionals from collegiate and professional athletics, local governments, sport tourism, state parks, outdoor recreation, sales, marketing, and communications.

The Recreation and Sport Management faculty are optimistic that the Symposium will attract new students by elevating the department and college. The Symposium will assist in fostering the conditions necessary for students to succeed after college by enabling them to explore a wide range of career options, allowing them to discover their interests, and reducing the pressure of internships by giving them a chance to network with local and outside professionals.

The RSM faculty hope you join us for this impactful educational experience to further embark on your experience here at Coastal Carolina University as a Recreation and Sport Management major!
