    In two weeks I’ll be halfway done with college!! So, what can you find me doing next year? There are many opportunities on this campus and I want to take part in as many as possible!

    Student Orientation Leader – I will help with summer orientation days and have a group of first-years to mentor for the entire year.

    Spartan Ambassador – This is a job in Admissions where I will be a tour guide, lunch host with prospective families and be a panelist. I’m also in two different group messages for admitted students and parents totaling 200+ people where I answer questions they might have about MU.

    Sports Information Student Assistant – I will work football, soccer and basketball games playing music, running social media and manning the scoreboards.

    Social Media Ambassador – That’s what this blog is for, typing blogs every couple weeks!

    College of Business Club Director – my position is CBC Programming Committee Director. I plan networking events for College of Business students, and I network with current business professionals and bring them to speak to our students.

    STAT (Students Today Alumni Tomorrow)– This is a philanthropy club that speaks to many alumni and do various volunteering activities around campus!

    Student Senate – We are the voice for Manchester students! We meet every other week to discuss issues around campus and how to improve campus!

    Baseball – Of course I’m going to take advantage of my final two years of college to continue my athletic career! I’ve made many friends and experiences thus far, and I can’t wait to see what the next two years bring.

    Men’s Basketball Intern – Starting in the fall and continuing until the end of basketball season, I will be working closely with the team in regard to enhancing their social media presence, recruiting and doing some game-day operations work.

    Being involved helps me build my network of contacts and increases my people skills/speaking skills. Personally, I feel like being busy and having a crazy schedule in college will get me ready for the crazy business and sports industry for my career. I’m also not a fan of just sitting around day after day because I feel a little unproductive.

    However, on top of the previously stated opportunities, there are many more clubs and jobs to join on campus! Other jobs on campus include:

    • Resident Assistant
    • Recruiting Secretaries
    • Chartwells Worker
    • Various Office Assistants
    • VIA Ushers
    • Writing Consultant
    • Peer Tutor
    • C.A.R.E. Peer Educator

    In another blog post, I used the term “productive socializing”. Many jobs and clubs on campus have chances to speak to students, faculty, and staff while working; it’d be a great idea to get involved with either a club or job because you can meet so many great people, build your network and personal skills, and create a bunch of experiences!
