My internship with North Carolina INT League, and the courses offered, fully prepared me for my real life experience in the action sports industry."  ~ Brennon Patton '18

(The INT League, known as the “Little League of Watersports,” is an exciting league for wakeboarding, waterskiing, kneeboarding and wakeskating)

"St Andrews is a unique school. The majority of the students are either athletes or equestrian students.  The Sport and Recreation major creates the opportunity to assist with the sport you are playing and everything that goes along with it like coaching, administration, and training in the field of sports, and recreation. Quality teaching and coaching, along with practical experience, combine for a very hands on major." ~ Troy Baranik ‘11
