Bandier Program for Music and the Entertainment Industries (B.S.) with minors in Management Studies and Music Performance
New Providence, NJ
If you could only listen to one music artist for the rest of your days, who would it be?
The Reign of Kindo (If you haven’t heard of them, check them out!)
How’d you become a part of the Spiders team?
Former Spider Will Skalmoski reached out to me before his semester abroad asking if I’d be interested in a job. I hadn’t heard of Spiders or the Office of Marketing and Communications prior to this. The intent was that if I was hired, I’d perform his job while he was in London. After my interview, it was determined I’d actually be a better fit to eventually take on the role of Spiders Coordinator after the current Coordinator Claire Alex graduated. I joined the team as a freshman and they haven’t been able to get rid of me since.
What was your favorite part about working here?
Besides potlucks, I enjoyed getting to know people I likely would not have interacted with otherwise. On a bigger campus, it can be challenging to meet people outside of your dorm or your classes. But Spiders allows you to meet and collaborate with people outside of your major and year.
Do you have any advice for current and/or future Spiders?
Current Spiders: Be mindful of your time. Taking on a part-time job on top of classes and extracurriculars can be a lot to handle at once. Stay organized with your schedule, but be sure to make some time for fun. College can be competitive with everyone trying to be “the best” and the most successful. But remember, it’s important for your social well-being and sanity to spend time with friends. It’s worth staying up late to finish your work after spending cherished time with your pals.
Future Spiders: Learn as much as you can. Take advantage of your time at Spiders to improve your skills and learn new ones. Ask questions. Foster conversations. Don’t be shy. This job requires more than just arriving, sitting at your desk, and leaving. Have fun and enjoy every moment!
