Steps to Enrollment

Mallorie Parsons '16 participated in a dolphin-assisted therapy internship program while studying at Radford University.

After transferring to Radford University, Mallorie Parsons '16 knew that she had found her home, an environment where she could learn, grow and experience new things. One unqiue experience Mallorie had while studying at Radford University was participating in an internship directly related to her major of Recreation Therapy. 

“I get to work one-on-one with kids and adults with special needs. We do classroom therapy sessions where we can really focus on the goals they want to achieve. Then, we transition them into the water where they get to do an interaction with the dolphins,” explained Parsons. “When we have people in the water, it’s a lot of smiles."
