BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Not only is it true, but you likely have a feeling of jealously when you read that students at Lynn University in Boca are taking part in a program that puts them on the ground at the Olympics in London, and gives them credit as well.
According to Lynn:
Twelve Lynn University sports management students will be going for the gold this summer. They won’t be competing in any of the games, but they will have the opportunity for a one-of-a-kind educational experience when the Summer Olympics Games in London, England, becomes their learning lab for a 3-credit class called “The Olympic Games Experience,” July 27 through Aug. 6.
“For Lynn students, learning doesn’t end in the classroom – it begins there,” says Lynn sports management professor Ted Curtis, who is joined on the trip by fellow professor Charles Barr.
Students will work with industry professionals, explore numerous Olympic venues and learn about the history and the current issues that surround the Games. They have tickets to track and field, soccer, volleyball, basketball and others.
