'After Class' Podcast
The Case for Getting Outside
A Holistic W&L Experience Extends Beyond the Walls of a Classroom
In this episode, we spend time with James Dick, W&L’s director of outdoor education and recreation. We learn how James found his way to W&L and why he loves his job, the ways in which recreation intersects with W&L students’ experiences in the classroom and life, and how the outdoors can be a lifelong classroom.
“Recreation — specifically outdoor recreation — provides scientifically proven benefits to the human body.”
~James Dick, W&L’s director of outdoor education and recreation.
