The Cardinal Rules of Risk-Taking

The Student Rec Center and Dale Ramsay are featured in this months  Campus Rec Magazine. Campus Rec is a national print and digital magazine that serves as a resource for college and university rec centers.

Albert Einstein once said, “A ship is always safe at shore — but that is not what it is built for.” This quote rings true for Dale Ramsay, the Director of Intramural and Recreational Sports at the University of Louisville. Throughout his career, Ramsay has learned that often the biggest risks lead to the greatest rewards.
