Andy Milton has a master's degree in sports administration-and a passion for staying active. His mom says he was always on the go as a child. Now he is SAU's director of Campus Recreation.
So What's Campus Rec?
Club sports, exercise classes, intramurals, wellness programming, and a surprisingly high level of student employment (more than 40 on staff). "We're providing opportunities for students to learn something new or continue something they already enjoy," said Milton. "It's about helping them develop awareness, tools and lifelong healthy habits."
A Typical Day
No such thing, according to Milton.
"That's one of the things I like about the job," he said. "Lots of planning, programming, building relationships-and putting out fires. I'm active, moving, doing different things; I have to be resourceful and ready for anything."
Milton in Three Words
"Energetic, outgoing and young-hearted," responded campus rec student worker Shelby Gruntorad.
Embarrassing Moment: A Ref in ‘Capris'
Milton, who officiates for NCAA Division III games, showed up for an out-of-town basketball game without his black officiating pants. "I had to borrow the football coach's pants," said the 6-foot-3 Milton. They were about six inches too short and despite pulling up his black socks "as high as they could go," colleagues were quick to text and picture-message Milton's plight.
