The Health, Kinesiology, and Recreation Department provides students in the Exercise Science and Sports Management degree programs an internship experience in their chosen profession. According to the department chair, Steven D. Dingman, “this venture in experiential learning is critical to the success of our students. Selecting and being accepted to the “best” internship site is so important as they commonly lead to employment or at a minimum networking that provides the student an opportunity to enter the profession of their choice”.
This month we are spotlighting Cody Fox, a Sport Management major from De Witt, Arkansas. In his last semester Cody is interning at the Verizon Arena in North Little Rock. While there Cody will get experience in all departments that include Administration, Fiance, Marketing, Operations and the Box Office. According to Cody “I want to learn what it takes to run an event from the start to the finish.”
Dingman said that during a recent visit to the internship site Cody’s site supervisor bragged about Cody’s work ethic and professionalism.
Cody will conclude his semester-long internship and graduate this December.
