Get connected with a NIRSA Professional Member in your area of interest
Learn what it takes to be successful in collegiate recreation. As students, most of us have outstanding mentors with challenge, nurture, and encourage our career paths. In short, they help us push our boundaries. Why not converse with a mentor outside of your inner circle? Connecting with someone who has different experiences and a different perspective can be a valuable advantage in growing as a professional? Individuals in collegiate recreation often make the most of opportunities to be a graduate assistant or professional far away from where they went to college. That’s part of what makes our community so great.
As our profession’s members experience different places, cultures, and backgrounds, it’s important to start connecting with our larger community, beyond our own campuses.
