Describes the faculty as:
blind leading the blind.But both of them do excel at BS'ing, and you could easily be misled into choosing this as your major, and learning absolutely NOTHING of real value. You may waste several undergraduate years of your life, and find out that you will likely NEVER actually work in the field of "Recreation, Event and Sport Management' as this is a pseudo term invented by them when the other two, former legitimate program areas fell apart due to faculty resignations. Do yourself a favor before deciding on this program or major, and research the mediocre "Internship Evaluations" for the remaining supervising faculty to get an idea of just how meaningless this program area could be for you. FACT: If you are truly interested in working in any type of event MANAGEMENT, you would be better off getting a BUSINESS degree and minoring in recreation. At least with a business degree, WHEN (not IF) you discover that you can't make a decent living (defined as being able to purchase a home, a car and save fore retirement) as a 'special event' or 'sport management' person, you could get a good-paying job in an unrelated field with your LEGITIMATE BUSINESS degree.
