On February 25, approximately 60 of the EdD in Kinesiology students, faculty, staff, and their families gathered together for a social hosted by the EdD in Kinesiology online program. Students and faculty gathered for food and fun prior to the UNCG Men’s baseball game vs. Michigan State, Women’s softball game vs. Longwood, Men’s Basketball game vs. Virginia Military Institute (VMI) at the Fleming Coliseum at UNCG. There was plenty of time for catching up with each other, especially when the Men’s Basketball game was was postponed to 7:00 pm start to help players recover from the previous day’s stomach bug. The team battled back and earned a 74-67 victory over VMI (Click this for more details: Men’s Basketball game vs. VMI). What a great way to show some school spirit, and catch up with friends. Despite the degree program being online with students all over the country, we are always looking for opportunities to stay connected with social gatherings like this and/or at professional conferences. The EdD in Kinesiology Online program put an emphasis on building a strong community among the EdD students and faculty.
