Fall 2016 Highlights The beginning of the fall semester 2016 at KWS was the first full semester since
the merger with Sport and Leisure Management. In addition, to this we had several
new faculty members join us. Inspired by their travels, students who studied abroad
in the spring/summer brought back tales of their adventures. As the semester progressed
students participated in many activities that not only showcased their talents but
provided them with many opportunities to learn new skills and network. Several faculty
members had their research published and some undergraduate students got their first
taste of what it looks like to do a research paper. The semester ended with the addition
of a new staff member and our fall 2016 graduates leaving us to pursue careers.
