The Washington State University NW NIRSA/NW Fit Fest planning committee is preparing for an exciting few days on the Palouse where professionals and students from the Pacific Northwest region can come together for professional development and continuing education opportunities. 

What is NW NIRSA?

Northwest NIRSA is a professional conference where current and aspiring recreation professionals in the Northwest can take part in three days of presentations, activities, and networking. The conference will provide opportunities for professional development and networking for both students and professionals in the region. Last year’s conference was hosted by the University of Washington and will be headed to the rolling hills of the Palouse at Washington State University this spring.

What is NW Fit Fest?

Northwest Fit Fest is a jam-packed, two-day, student-led conference for students with a passion for fitness and recreation. Attendees will participate in engaging activities and listen to informative lectures, all while creating long-lasting connections with other students and professionals. Northwest Fit Fest invites students with any level of interest in fitness, especially those looking to develop more knowledge and contacts within the field. The University of Oregon and the University of Washington have both previously hosted this event, and Washington State University is very eager to keep it going!
