What Our Students Are Saying

Kevin Teel '14:

"I graduated Kutztown University with a bachelor's degree in Leisure and Sports Studies, May of 2014. I am an avid sports fan, specifically a NASCAR fan. Studying Sports Management was the best decision I made while attending Kutztown. Through the required internship I was able to land a job right out of college at my internship site, Pocono Raceway. I work in the industry of my dreams now all thanks to the whole sports management department."

"Transferring to the LSS major was one of the best decisions I made during my undergrad at Kutztown University.  The faculty and professors are friendly, and provide professional advice helping us assess our future career goals.  There are abundant networking opportunities provided by the department, which allows us as students to hear real world stories from successful professionals within the sports business industry.  The LSS staff provides adaptable office hours to meet our busy schedules as students, and will take time out of their days to individually address our issues, anytime we need extra help with scheduling classes, individual tutoring, or just being their to talk you through any life dilemmas you might be facing. One of the more recent additions to the major was the Sports Leisure and Athletic Management club, which is currently advised by Professor Cebula.  The SLAM Club's main goal is to provide its members with the necessary tools, and applications for post university success.  SLAM club also provides excellent networking opportunities with other students, successful alumni, and guest speakers.  In addition members also have an opportunity to volunteer at the Super Bowl!  It is these types opportunities provided by our faculty, that give us the opportunity to thrive as LSS students."

"One of the greatest opportunities I received at Kutztown was the many volunteer opportunities offered. I received a tremendous amount of support from the department and college of business to organize a group of students to volunteer at the 2013 Super Bowl in New Orleans. This experience was so successful that it allowed us to plan for more events.  We have volunteered at the 2014 Super Bowl in New York, The Broad Street Run in Philadelphia, and Valley Preferred Cycling Center Events just to name a few.  Being able to volunteer during our college years helps students gain much needed experience and make connections for our future. The many volunteer opportunities the university provides students are invaluable for the students enrolled in Kutztown University's Sports Management program.  I'd like to thank the faculty and administration for the opportunity they provided me and their never ending support. I am now a Game Day intern for the Philadelphia Eagles. During the interview for the position with the Eagles they were most impressed by the volunteer opportunities I had while at Kutztown University, particularly volunteering at two Super Bowl Fan Fest events."
