Creating experiential learning opportunities for sport management students is vital to their success in the industry. In this article, the author gives examples of how professors can successfully integrate classroom material with practical involvement in an introductory sport management course. Students participated in a semester-long community engagement project where they employed reflexive journaling and shared their experiences with others, further understanding the industry and their place in it.
