"From running game-day operations to creating graphics to selling season tickets in the Ticket Office, I have gained invaluable experience and immersion into my desired career field. No one day is the same in the Athletic Department, and the administration continuously challenges me on a daily basis. This priceless opportunity has given me an exciting look into my plans for the future. From a Sports Management standpoint, knowing each of my professors on a first name basis creates a special connection, especially as I am preparing for my future career."
