"Service is the rent we pay for being.
It is the very purpose of life,
And not something you do in your spare time.
-Marion Wright Edleman
When I am not in class or doing homework, I am working as a Graduate Assistant in the Office of Student Activities in the J. Wayne Reitz Union.
As a graduate assitant, I am responsible for the media relations for the Office of Student Activities and the Reitz Union as well as advising the RUPC Entertainment Committee.
One of my biggest responsiblities is to develop the entire publicity campaign for the Lively Arts performance series. The first show of the series is coming up soon and is The House Of Blues.
My time spent in the Office of Student Activities has been a tremendous learning experience for me. I have truely enjoyed working with my students and the staff of the Union. The office has become a second family to me, not only because of how much time I spend there, but because of the relationships formed. Despite the fun times we have there, I have worked very hard. The work I have done has really been preparing me for what I will face when I graduate and start a full-time job.
A Time To Play.
Let's go back to the beginning.
