Black Hills State University students recently took a day to tour organizations in Hot Springs identifying potential employment and internships opportunities. The goals of the BHSU-organized preview day/road trip program were to connect students with businesses and help them begin building professional relationships around the Black Hills. Students visited three organizations in Hot Springs: the Michael J. Fitzmaurice South Dakota Veterans Home, VA Black Hills Health Care System, and Fall River Health Services.
We caught up with Black Hills State University professor Dr. Chris McCart and student Isabella San Miguel to get their take on the Top 10 hikes close to campus. McCart leads the outdoor education department at BHSU, a program that prepares students for professional careers in parks, nature centers, zoos, aquaria, natural resource management, camps, and eco-tourism programs. San Miguel, elementary education major from Tea, is president of the Collegiate Outdoor Leadership Program at BHSU.
Black Hills State University will offer a new Certificate in Adventure Education this fall, preparing students to be outdoor professionals who can plan and deliver quality education experiences. The South Dakota Board of Regents approved the certificate offering today.
