Sport and Recreation Management Student Experience

Learn more about what life is like as a UISRM student. There are many opportunities to get involved both in and out of the classroom! 

A student organizational club was founded in 2017 with the goal to further the professional development of University of Iowa SRM students. It gives a platform for people to network amongst others in the program, gain valuable experience during the semester, and learn more about local Iowa sports community.

Biannually, Lecturer Dan Matheson arranges and leads a group of students on a 2-day, industry field trip to a city in the region. See video highlights of the Spring 2017 trip to Milwaukee!
