CRLT Student for a Day

Prospective students have the opportunity to experience what it is like being a student in CRLT through the Community Recreation Leadership Training Student for a Day program.

Student for a Day activities for this program take place in October, November, December and February. Because students are in fieldwork in February there are less opportunities available.

When activities are onsite at Dawson, participants attend CRLT classes, meet some of the faculty and students, tour the CRLT area and have all their questions answered. Student for a Day only take place from Monday-Thursday. Visiting students are asked to wear active/casual clothing, plan to attend from 9am-2pm and bring a lunch/snacks.

While activities at Dawson are online, student for a day visits are still available. Dates are being finalized so please complete the form below and we will communicate with you about specific options  as they become available.

In order to make the online experience easier for all, we are offering potential students A taste of CRLT. This will be a 2-3 hour simulated multi-course experience. You will attend a selection of mini-classes presented by our faculty, have the opportunity to interact and talk with current students and get a idea of what CRLT is all about. We will share how we have adapted hands-on and experiential learning to the online environment and you will even get a photo tour of our Dawson facility and program rooms. Because this is a simulation, we are able to schedule activities to better meet your needs. 

Current Dawson students looking to transfer programs may join A Taste of CRLT activities or may choose to attend a Live Classes (online) in real time with students and faculty.  


A Taste of CRLT will be available on the dates below in Fall 2020 :

  • Friday Dec. 4 – 9:00-11:30 am
  • Thursday Dec. 10 – 2:30-5:00 pm
  • Tuesday Dec. 15 – 6:00 – 8:30 pm

More dates for Winter 2021 will be posted soon.
