Advisor/Coordinator Email:


I am the Student Organization Resource Assistant, and through this position I am responsible for a few areas. The main responsibility I hold is to review all Event Authorization forms that are submitted by clubs and organizations. After reviewing these forms, I send follow up emails for clarification on their forms or even to ensure every detail is covered for their event. I also help monitor the Marketplace. The Marketplace is an online store for students to use for payments towards their clubs. There is a weekly meeting for organizations and clubs to attend that need special attention for their event that I attend and send follow up emails to. Overall, this position includes a lot of meeting up with student groups and reviewing forms.


My greatest accomplishment through this experience is being able to have meetings with students on how to better their event. Each event is different, and this requires me to be able to remember a plethora of rules. I enjoy meeting up with students to help them monitor their progress and receive full approval.

What advice would you give?

My advice for future students is to get as many experiences as you possibly can. Each experience you are given can be used for learning and to push you farther in your career. Never stop learning, never think you have fully reached the finish line, but always enter situations with an open mind that is ready to soak up anything you possibly can.
