Student Opportunities

With Cedar Rapids being the second largest city in the state, students have the possibility of engaging in internships and work experiences that can propel them to unimagined careers. Students who have education in their mind have the possibility of teaching in six high schools, ten middle schools, or thirty-seven elementary schools without even leaving the metropolitan area. Many have parlayed their student teaching experiences into full-time employment because of supervisor recommendations. Athletic Republic and Rockwell Fitness Center have been two popular business entities that have provided physical education majors with hands on daily job experiences. For the student that has that sport administration interest two semi-professional sport organizations exist. The Cedar Rapids Kernals baseball organization and the Cedar Rapids Roughriders hockey organization have been helpful for students wish to stay involved in sport, but from business standpoint.
