My Office This is where I spent most of my day processing ticket orders or other special projects that my supervisor sent my way.
DailyActivities • Process ticket orders for any athletic and non-athletic events held on campus • Contact donors and other ticket holders answering questions about football applications and parking assignments • Complete a sales report at the end of each day and upon the conclusion of each event • Help supervisors oversee student workers at events, fixing any problems that occur • Make sure there is enough money and ticket stock for events
Extra Activities • Softball and Baseball teams both hosted NCAA Regional Tournaments with softball also hosting a Super Regional • Worked the 12th Man information tables at New Student Conferences • Played on the office softball team • WWE was our main summer event
Project Description • Kyle Field and Reed Arena Seating Projects • Using Excel, I had to create an exact layout of each section of Kyle Field’s West 1st Deck and Reed Arena. I color coded and labeled the seats based on who they were reserved for including Athletic Department Staff, Faculty, Sponsors, Recruits and Player Guests. This graph was then used by Athletic Director Bill Byrne and our Director of Ticketing to determine who would be relocated to open up extra seating in each venue.
