Recreational Leadership Alumni

"I am very fortunate to have studied at JSU and receive my degree in the Recreational Leadership program. My education and experiences at JSU prepared me very well for my career. Without the level of dedication from my professors, my career would not be where it is today. I'm proud to have spent my undergraduate years at JSU in such a great program"
