What are some good extracurriculars for parks and recreation (park districts)/sports management?
Answered

I am a freshman student interested in either parks and recreation or sports management undergrad programs. I was wondering what would be good extracurriculars for either of these programs. I am not good at sports athletically, so playing wouldn't be an option. What are some good extracurriculars? Thank you!

Anything related to business or management. Sports Management programs especially are basically more specialized business programs, so clubs like DECA or FBLA would be a good way to begin building up those skills. Likewise for more politics-oriented ECs like debate, Model UN, etc. Likewise, the majority of jobs in Parks & Rec are going to be organizational or management related—so business or politics experience would get you going in that direction.

So as someone who is not really interested in parks& Rex is recomend some sort of environmental club a love of camping and general nature related ECs however for super selective schools like Stanford I’d look at the video Casestudy #6 Erinn Andres former satnford admission

That kinda shows how too much an EC genre could hurt you at ivy level schools.

Also I recently saw a webinar for Univ of Montana they have a top5 forestry program and if you live in the Western part of US you can attend there pretty cheaply with WUE and they have decent Finicial Aid
