Now that we’re just about a month into classes, it’s important for all students, especially the newest members of our campus community, the freshman class of 2018 to get involved on campus! At Syracuse University, there’s over 300 student organizations to get involve with, in all areas you could think of (and so many that you’ve never even thought of before). Student organizations are open to all SU students and it’s a great way to expand your knowledge and experience during your years at Syracuse, outside of the classroom. Getting involved in a student organization not only is a great way to meet new people outside of your home college, but often it’s a great way to get professional experience through volunteer opportunities on campus, and community service projects throughout the community. Since my freshman year on campus, I’ve been heavily involved in the Sport Management Club, in which we hold our annual charity sports auction every December in the backcourt of the Carrier Dome during a men’s basketball game. For the past three year’s I’ve held numerous leadership positions for our auction, as a Sales Committee, Facilities Committee, and this year, as a Marketing Committee chair. To date, we’ve raised over $213,000 for numerous non-profit organizations throughout the Central New York community including the Boys & Girls Clubs, American Diabetes Association, Golisano Children’s Hospital at Upstate, the Ronald McDonald House Charities of CNY, the Central New York SPCA, the Upstate Cancer Center, Special Olympics New York, and most recently, the Food Bank of CNY in which we raised $30,500 for last year. This year’s auction will benefit Make-A-Wish Central New York, and will be held on December 6th when we take on St. John’s in front of a huge crowd on a nationally broadcasted game. I invite all of you to follow our auction on Twitter @SPMAuction and check out our website: http://sucharitysportsauction.com/
