Halfway through my senior year of high school I applied for a job at the Rowan Rec Center. At the time, I never knew how much of a role the Rec Center would play in my freshman experience. It was one of the best things to happen to me during my first semester of college.
I wanted to get involved on campus, and I was ecstatic to find that Freshmen are able to work at the Rec Center. On the first day of training I was nervous and scared, but as I entered the building, the atmosphere was welcoming and this building quickly became a home away from home for me. Everybody here has a common goal: to make the Rec a safe and welcoming place.
Working at the Rec Center as a freshman has been an amazing experience. It has lessened my anxiety, given me a sense of belonging, and has introduced me to amazing people and amazing experiences.
I am currently a Marketing Assistant on the Marketing team, and I will be a Cycling Instructor this spring! Look for me on this semester's schedule, Sean Scott.
