Working as the Online Communities and Marketing Coordinator for SBE has been a fantastic experience. My co-op term has passed the halfway mark and I don’t know where the time went; in just one month I will have to say goodbye to my second home. Working with Patrycja in the marketing department has been wonderful and is a prime example of a stress-free job. Her daily anecdotes about family life and a small coffee are just about all I need to keep happy at the desk. The bulk of my work is focused on making changes to the Laurier website, managing our social media pages and planning SBE events (and of course, the added perk of planning events, is attending them). Laurier’s Development Day, the SOBDR Conference and CEO in Residence events have presented a great opportunity to learn from successful individuals, meet some fantastic people and enjoy the free food (heh). But really…so much food.
In just one week from today I fly out to Las Vegas for the Rubik’s Cube World Championships at the Riviera Casino & Hotel. To say I’m excited is an understatement; I have been practicing a lot lately and I’m eager to improve my rank of 44th in the world and 4th in Canada. My main goal for the event is to break the Canadian record for solving as many Rubik’s Cubes blindfolded as possible in under an hour (current record is 10…we’ll see how I do!). Hopefully I will bring home the gold for Laurier!
Finally, here are two fun facts about working on campus:
Fun fact #1: This position grants the use of TWO monitors. I have never felt so important.
Fun fact #2: Counting the number of students who mistake the office (P2115) for a classroom is really entertaining. They typically reach about five steps in before turning around and walking out awkwardly. This happens a lot.
Until next time,
