NEWS FROM OUR GRADUATESMy degree helped me get into Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line because this company is the #1 tourist attraction in the entire world. Let's face it, everyone wants to go to Disney at least once in their lifetime! My life goal ambition has always been to be more than I can be and working for a company like Disney has allowed me to accomplish my goals and dreams. Disney doesn’t just pick a random person off the streets though. They value those with educations and backgrounds working with children, activities and events.NancyHritz My degree allowed me to do that and now I am where I am because of UNCW faculty, staff and team!

From Space Travel to Pizza, Your Bitcoin Goes Fa

You can’t get much more mainstream than professional American sports. In that sense, Thursday’s news that the Sacramento Kings basketball team will let its fans use bitcoin to purchase tickets, jerseys, hot dogs and anything else from its selection of products may go down as a key moment in the digital currency’s coming of age.
But this is only the latest in a steady progression of vendors choosing to transact in bitcoin, a group that is at the vanguard of the digital currency’s bid for legitimacy.
There are now tens of thousands of merchants around the world accepting bitcoin

  • Avatar Lily What can I do with a degree in Recreation, Sports, and Tourism?
    Jan 09, 2014 by Lily | Posted in Other - Games & Recreation

    Just wondering what options lie before me if I took a 4 year Bachelor of Arts in recreation, sport, and tourism. Thanks!

    • This degree lends itself to a career in community recreation, military recreation, non-profit recreation (YMCA, Boys and Girls Club, etc.), year round director for a summer camp, hotel management, resort management, cruise ship management, amusement park management, etc.

      However, I …nce realized that your degree doesn't tie you down to just a few career options. While I stuck with a career in community recreation and summer camps (and I absolutely love it) I do know there are many other career paths I can take if I so choose.

      Good luck in your decision making.
