I really like all of the opportunities to apply what I learn almost immediately in important and out-of-the-classroom situations. There's not much that is more satisfying than learning something in a lecture and actually finding it useful and applicable to something I want to do outside of school.

When I first learned about the Therapeutic Recreation program at Waterloo I instantly knew it would be a great fit for me. I have always loved helping others and making connections with people in the community and this program was the perfect way of doing that.

I chose the Recreation and Sport Business because the information that I am learning in my courses aligns perfectly with my future career goals.

What I like best about my program is without a doubt the professors! They exude the passion they teach. We have the best professors doing ground-breaking research and making a difference in the future.

I love the tight knit community, co-op, and the assignments/case studies we do that apply to the real world.
