Filming a Video for Admissions
Name: Drew Guarino
Hometown: Reading, MA
Major: Organizational Communication
Expected Year of Graduation: 2010
Internship Sponsor: Assumption College Admissions Office
As the Assumption College Enrollment Management Intern, I am responsible for representing Assumption at high school and college fairs. I assist at Saturday informational sessions for prospective students and their families, as well as conduct interviews with potential students. I also help manage the Accepted Students web site.
My internship has been an excellent opportunity for me to showcase what I have learned at Assumption. I am able to see the concepts that have been discussed in classes applied in a real work environment. My organizational communication background has provided me with the necessary tools to develop as a worker in a dynamic organization.
In Communication Theory, we discussed communication theories and principles in business environments. Determining how to effectively organize my thoughts and relay them to a prospective student is apparent in my student interviews. The Admissions Office takes my impressions of students seriously and even includes my interview notes in these student applications.
Currently, I am enrolled in the Business Internship class where we analyze the organizational culture of a company. At the Admissions Office, I feel like a natural fit. The organization prides itself on teamwork and creativity and as a result, I have flourished. It is a great feeling to know that my opinion is valued in the effort to get students interested in attending Assumption College.
My experience at the Admissions Office has made me realize that I would like to work for a college upon graduation. With my unique views of the college admissions process as a high school student, college student, and now as an Enrollment Management Intern, I have a complete perspective of Admissions work.
