Students taking leisure skills classes this spring at Clemson University are doing so to relieve stress and socialize with other students during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program typically offers more than 150 one-credit learning options every semester in subjects such as dance, yoga, fitness, outdoor recreation, and first aid as well as shotgun and other sports. Courses are developed and managed by the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management, which works with partners throughout campus to find space for its growing number of students. Classes give students an opportunity to unwind from stress and have the added benefit of allowing them to learn something new while socializing with students, which can be critical for students’ mental health.
