Additionally, the lab has partnered with the Vandalia Recreation Center to gain knowledge on what the center does daily. Students in the Sports Management and Marketing lab also have chosen a department within the Rec Center and will use their skills to solve a real life problem within that department.

The students will also be working on upcoming Vandalia Rec Center projects, junior Sinclair classes, as well as projects that come up during the remainder of the year.
