University unveils new tourism opportunity

With a rapidly growing tourism industry, CSU has announced a new one-year master’s degree in tourism management to help meet the ever expanding demand for trained tourism professionals.

According to a news release, 2012 is predicted to be a record year for the tourism industry – an industry that contributes around 100 million jobs and $2 trillion to the global economy.

The new program, which will feature coursework on management, communications, eco-tourism and sustainable tourism practices, is set to begin in the fall with the application deadline ending on May 15, 2012.

No Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores are needed to apply.

Find some balance

If you’re interested in building endurance, flexibility and strength, look no further than room 220 of the Lory Student Center Wednesday afternoon.

From noon to 1 p.m., the Kathryn T. Bohannon Women at Noon program will present “Vinyasa Yoga,” described as a “calm and welcoming yoga class” on the university event calendar.

The class – taught by Toni-Lee Viney, an academic counselor in the College of Business – is free and open to the public. A yoga mat is required.

Ladies night and the football is right

For female Ram fans who have always been interested in football, but never understood the logistics, it’s time to learn.

Wednesday at 5 p.m. in Moby Area, the coaching staff and players of CSU’s football team will be putting on a seminar to help attendees understand the game during the annual “Ladies Night Out” football clinic.

According to the university website, the athletic department-sponsored clinic will include practice viewing, raffle prizes and refreshments.

Women who registered will also receive a goody bag. For more information, contact the Office of CSU Events at (877) 498-7787.
