Athletics are a big attraction to many students when looking at colleges. When college sports programs have success, research done by Pope and Pope show that there is a boost in applications that the colleges receive from students. “Applications [after] a Championship add 7-8 percent, with a big effect in the immediate year and little effect after one year.” It was found that when colleges have winning athletic teams get more applications sent in from all levels of student and not just athletes. This is found true for basketball and football. Not only increase in applications is found but also found after success in football there is a growth in enrollment, this is not found true for basketball (Getz and Siegfried “What Does Intercollegiate Athletics Do…”). “David Schmidly the president of the University of New Mexico said “One of the most effective ways to market your university nationally is to have a really quality athletic program. It helps recruit faculty, students, and donors. It helps with the image of the whole university.” (qtd. in Getz and Siegfried “College Sports: The Mystery of the Zero-Sum Game.”)
We will all commit to reviewing the tasks and roles at the end of each meeting. The leader will prompt us into the discussion, however it is the responsibility of each member to review this individually. If we have any questions or are unsure of a task or role, we expect a group member to tell the other members before the end of the meeting. If discussion is needed, we as a team will clarify the issue or question.
They have a solid foundation that is respected everywhere. Their mission, vision, and values are strong and what are needed for the success of the programs throughout the United States. If they can keep the problems to a minimum there would be no way to stop them from being the most successful in the sport business. Also, the NCAA showed that they can overcome any obstacle and move forward which one needs to do in order to be successful and help other people and fan forget. While they can always use the Penn State scandal as an example and learning point, they allowed the university, fans, staff and players to move on by lifting a ban half way through the time they were sentenced. Sometimes one has to swallow their pride for the better of a business and organization to

Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University is an excellent place to create a better future for myself and for my community. At this University I can make others around me strive to be the best they can be by bring my unique passion and communication skills to campus. When I was a child I was very shy and quiet and now I have realized how much I have grown. After being in high school working on group assignments and joining extracurricular activities, I have built a great relationship with the students in my high school. In particular, the French Club that I joined during high school really helped me comfortably connect with my peers. If I am given the opportunity to attend Florida A&M University, I will help the campus community
By working for a media relations department, it allows you to get experience in three additional sections of the sports world, public relations, statistical analysis, and marketing. Public relations and Media relations tend to go hand and hand so it was not uncommon when I found myself working more with the communications side of sports. During my second year, I was assigned to work the post-game conferences for football. It involved me going down to the locker rooms to bring up both the away and home team coaches. Once the press conference was over, I then had to transcribe both the coach and player interviews for the final writes ups for the game. My favorite part of the internship was the statistical analysis side. This part of the internship I found myself completely in my comfort zone. When I would manage sports in high school, one of my tasks were to score the games and keep each player’s stats. Not only was I keeping score for both Towson’s field hockey team and baseball team, I was learning how to use different programs that are used in professional sports. The last section of the sports world media relations overlapped with is marketing. This side taught me how to market college athletics and everything that goes into a marketing plan. Marketing seemed to be the departments weakest department because of the lack of students that showed up to athletics. When tailgating was taken away, we had to come up with alternatives for students to enjoy game-day. I tend to think more logistically than creatively, so this forced me to become more
The position requires expertise in writing, computer and communication skills and a passion for sports. My academic programs emphasized sports communication and management.

While there, I gathered fans to participate in game changing activities
The have very busy jobs to do, so we make copies of orders and indictments for them to save time. This of course is the most informative job we have as interns because we get to watch all of the court cases and actually be a part of the big picture in the courtroom. We create the files that the ADA’s use to identify each defendant and we file each one with the clerk’ office on the second floor. When a case is closed, we write the date it was closed on the folder and then file it in the closed file cabinet. We are also responsible for taking all the closed files to the evidence overflow/closed case storage at the sheriff’s department. In the overflow were endless seizures from past crimes for us to gaze upon. Even an old drug dealers Z60 corvette was parked in the parking lot. At the District Attorney’s office, we were not stereotypical interns, we were actual employees with real responsibilities. The things we learned here in the courtroom and in the office gave us priceless experience a school classroom could not provide, along with lifelong connections and friendships that mean a lot more than just a few credit
Every step of my life is a lesson to me. My early childhood was a typical middle class environment in the 1990's. Since I was ten, I had always aspired to be a social worker in my life. When I was nineteen years old, I confirmed nursing as my future profession.

I went from a case load of 150 students to over 300 and supervising a staff of just over 10. I had to learn to manage my time efficiently and effectively while being able to handle and manage crises that arose during the day or any impending deadlines. It was also not rare to receive requests from the University General Counsel, Athletic Director, NCAA, Compliance
