Learning Hands On in South Korea
When a student goes for an interview and they can talk about their experience at the Olympics, it sets them apart from other individuals. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that and lead to many other opportunities in the future.”

Winter Olympics Send-off
Twenty-eight SU students and five faculty and staff members will travel to the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, from January 31 to February 27!
Shenandoah University, in conjunction with the Korean Olympic Committee, volunteered in the operations and execution of the 2018 Olympic/Paralympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea. Sport Management, Business, and Mass Communications students got to see the Winter Olympics in a unique way that most people will never get to experience and gain valuable knowledge of a major international sporting event. Lessons such as event planning, event management, cultural understanding, marketing, and more were taught to the students through class discussions and this intimate first-hand experience.
