Well, it is officially the last day of our Texas Sport Facility Symposium, and we are all exhausted…exhausted but changed forever by the experiences that we shared on this trip. As the faculty and staff who led the group, we not only got to meet some of the best in the field of recreation and sport facility management, but we also got to know each of the students better than we ever could have in a traditional class room setting. We have shared meals & stories, had philosophical discussions, played some cards, taken photos, discovered some pretty strange nuances about our hotel, driven all over the DFW area looking for a decent cup of coffee and WiFi…but most of all we have shared laughter and made memories that have become moments in life that we will always remember. We hope that you have enjoyed reading our posts and the students’ reflections as much as we have had in sharing them.
Safe travels to all of the students as they head home for a bit before classes officially begin in a week. We will see you again on campus, or online, soon!
