Blog Entry:

The Department of Athletics and Recreation handles varsity sports and recreational activities. I work primarily with the recreation portion of the department. Campus Recreation is committed to a student-centric approach to programming. The programs include: club sports, intramural activities and fitness programming. Recreational opportunities promote: a sense of community, student development through leadership and healthy active lifestyles for students.


In this all-inclusive environment, there is never a dull moment in the office – a new event to promote, new projects, or a new contest to oversee. When handling social media, creating posters and promoting recreational events, I have implemented many of the marketing skills that I learned in my Marketing Management class. I have experienced firsthand that multi-tasking, organizational skills and prioritizing tasks are critical to the smooth operation of all organizations.
