Office Hours

Job Description

You help to organize the thoughts and processes involved in campus-wide programming, and then you get the word out. Honestly, that's what I do. And campus-wide doesn't always mean it's a huge program that's as massive and incredible as the Fall Fling concert or Homecoming, but it means you put yourself out there to the campus to lend a hand. For example, I had a student come in to the office today and wanted to know what he had to do to put on a hip-hop concert. I told him to plan out what dates he was looking at, what kind of marketing he was thinking about doing, and then general assessment of the event. Then I said, bring to me what you then have, by say, Wednesday, and I'll help you narrow some things down and really put focus where it's needed, and what to do about funding. I like to be the one to help out to get things going. It makes me feel like my job is being completed one step-at-a-time.

Aside from helping others, there is also room for you to do your own programming, your own event(s). This is fun, since after you've been behind the desk for a couple rounds, you start to realize all the loops that need to be jumped, who needs to be talked to, what process is involved, and then from there, you know what exactly you can do and how to do it.
