At this internship, I am responsible for the set up and tear down of corporate events within the water park. I also coordinate food delivery times with the guests as well as submitting food orders and packages.


My greatest accomplishment has been running two large separate corporate events that were at the same time in two different locations. I was anxious about both events needing help at the same time, but the events went on great.

What advice would you give?

My advice to future students is to not be afraid to ask for help. Everyone makes mistakes every now and then, but most of them can be avoided it you ask clarifying questions if you are unsure.
