“Outdoor Education: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” will take place at 3 p.m. Monday, May 2 on the ground floor of the Maxwell Student Union. The event is free and open to the public.
The symposium will explore what current students of the program have researched and learned in the community and nature; discuss trendy career opportunities; and encourage others to consider this adventure-filled career path.
Keynote speaker Rob Dussler, ’02, will discuss his experiences as a graduate of Georgia College and how earning a master’s degree in Outdoor Education Administration from the university helped in his professional endeavors.
