I am studying Sport Management in hopes of pursuing a career in the Event or Arena Operations aspect of Sport.
As a student assistant and operations intern in the NC State football office, I am getting to see firsthand how the operations of a major college sport are managed. On game days, I work as a student host to recruits and their families. However, I have come to learn that though game day operations are important, the planning and logistics leading up to the event are equally as significant. In day-to-day operations, I assist the recruiting staff with getting mail outs to recruits in order to build the image of NC State Football. I also work from the “packfootball” social media accounts to ensure that the data we have is updated and accurate.
