    While collegiate recreation projects are major undertakings, their success often traces back to subtle details or nuanced decisions that end up defining a project. It’s important for recreation and university leadership to understand these details, so they don’t regret them years down the line. Nobody wants to overlook a detail and be left thinking, “I wish we’d known that then.” This webinar will give recreation leaders the information they need to make the most of the details, to seize key decisions large and small, and create longstanding successful projects on their campus. For new build and renovation projects alike, details make the difference, and this session will empower attendees to better conquer them moving forward. This webinar will speak to recreation professionals at every level.
