It's Great To Be A Florida Gator!
Upon arriving at the University of Florida, a student is immediately awed by the size and magnitude of this university. UF always does things in a big way. Athletics is no exception. The University of Florida's Sports Information Department is considered one of the best in the nation. Thus, any student considering a career in sports quickly volunteers his or her services to this impressive component of UF.
With the dozens of sports provided at UF, student assistants are always needed. From football games of 80,000+ screaming fans to gymnastics meets and tennis tournaments, the experience that can be gained through any of these events is extraordinary. Also, you get to go to all student athletics for free, and there is no better seat than a press box!
Student assistants are offered a variety of duties. Website updates, writing feature articles, keeping statistics, and assisting production of media guides are just a few of the tasks a student may partake in. These activities are particularly helpful to the individual pursuing a career in public relations capacities. Working with Sports Information is an opportunity that should not be overlooked. It is beneficial professionally, and it is a great time!
