For decades, the department has educated students to enter the workforce in some of the most unique jobs in the market. From event specialists and recreation therapists to hotel managers and forest rangers, we have some of the most diverse graduates from CSU, Chico. Serving others in the pursuit of leisure bond all of these unique career paths into the department core. One of the goals of the department is to enable students to get real-world experience. Each semester Chico State Recreation, Hospitality, and Park Management students work hard to learn new skills and acquire experience that will help them apply to real world experience in their future careers of event management, recreation therapy, resort and lodging, parks and tourism professionals. Students of the Recreation Department plan and implement our annual event, Saveur. For this event, students plan and work together to develop a successful event that raises money for the Chico State Recreation Department. This event is new this year in the fact that attendance is by invitation only. The guests of the event are invited as a thank you and recognition to their ongoing support of the department.
