kayakingIntrepid George Mason University students are having fun and learning something new this spring as part of a two-credit course on kayaking.

The course is one of more than 50 one-credit or more courses offered each semester by the Physical Activity for Lifetime Wellness program in the School of Recreation, Health and Tourism.  Available to all students, faculty and staff at George Mason, the courses range from the traditional (such as yoga, pilates, soccer and karate) to the adventurous (such as snowboarding, rock climbing and marksmanship) to the intriguing (such as underwater hockey and krav maga). Most courses are geared toward beginners and meet for half a semester.
