CRLT Student for a Day

Three students on a computer welcoming questions

Prospective students have the opportunity to experience what it is like being a student in the Community Recreation Leadership Training (CRLT) Program through our in-person Student for a Day, CRLT Experience activities and virtual Taste of CRLT.

Student for a Day activities are scheduled in October, November and February. These visits take place on specifically scheduled Mondays to Thursdays. Participants attend CRLT classes, meet faculty and students, tour the CRLT area and have questions answered. Visiting students are asked to wear active/casual clothing, plan to attend as scheduled between 9:30am-2:00pm and bring a lunch/snack. 

CRLT Experience events are short, structured events which integrate samples of class content, activities and a question period. These are usually led by a team of faculty, alumni and current students.

For those unable to attend in person, we have transformed visits online. Taste of CRLT is a 1.5-2 hour simulated multi-course experience. Participants attend a selection of mini classes presented by faculty, interact and talk with current students, get a photo tour of our program area and an overview of CRLT.  As a simulation of our traditional student for a day activity, the schedule varies to include evenings. 

Current Dawson students exploring alternative program options may participate in sections of Student for A Day class visits or join A Taste of CRLT activities depending on availability and interest.
