On January 17th some of the local/regional EdD in Kinesiology students, along with members of the faculty, attended a UNCG basketball game at the Greensboro Coliseum. The Spartans delivered a convincing victory over Virginia Military Institute, no doubt because of our awesome cheering. The day was a great time for students and faculty alike. It was good to get face-to-face time with each other, show some school spirit, and catch up with each others’ lives. Students from both the 2014 and 2015 cohorts attended the event. We are looking forward to more of these type of social outings. Community is a key factor in the success of our online program and the strong community we have was evident as these students came together for this event. We may not “see” each other on a regular basis but it is very evident that we have a strong bond. The EdD in Kinesiology program is looking forward to sponsoring more of these events in the future.
