This year the Office of Student Development chose two new interns for its student run branch called the Office of Student Activities (OSA). Internships are appointed on a yearly basis and their focus is to advance co-curricular life. The intern’s responsibilities include program planning, marketing and implementing workshops.
Profiles of Interns
Meta Porcella ‘14 and Ashley Overdorff ‘12, are the two new interns for the 2011-12 school year. Overdorff holds the Orientation and Marketing intern position. She works closely with Asst. Dean of Students, Rebecca Hammell to create a better Orientation Week. She reviews the schedule from previous Orientations and revises it to make the week run smoother for both new and returning students.
Porcella is the Programming and Marketing intern. Her job is to get the campus involved with fun activities. Her most recent project was for Arts Day. She utilizes creative advertising methods to attract student’s attention for campus events. Porcella said while making the crayon boxes for Arts Day, "this is just one out of several ideas that I had for advertising, and I thought this would grab the most attention."
Becky Harrison ‘12, maintains her internship with OSA, but now holds the Leadership Development intern position. She runs the leadership activities and will be starting this year’s series "Leadership: the Adventure."
