Spring Party Weekend Committee
One of few student members selected to the committee responsible for planning Colgate's annual Spring Party Weekend (SPW). With a budget of $175,000, SPW consists of 10+ events over the course of one weekend in April that are promoted to the entire campus community.
I served as Co-Managing Director of the Hamilton United Gift Shop (HUGS), a start-up that curated locally-sourced food and memorabilia gift packages for delivery to students on campus and to alumni nationwide. The HUGS endeavor was supported by Colgate's Thought into Action Entrepreneurial Institute, which entailed close collaboration with alumni and other student entrepreneurs to launch our venture, as well as observing and providing feedback to roughly 20+ other student ventures throughout their start-up processes.
Member of the Colgate Activities Board during all four years. Co-Head of the Music Committee during my sophomore, junior, and senior years.
We arranged approximately 5 school-sponsored music events per semester and marketed them to the student body through promotional campaigns using social media and on-campus resources.
