NPACE – Leonard Hood

This will be one of my last weeks being in NPACE considering I will be graduating in 11 days. Looking back, there isn’t anywhere else I would have wanted to intern at besides NPACE. I do not regret the time spent in there because something new was being learned each day. NPACE not only taught me different creating, recording, to editing skills, but it also gave me plenty of hands on experience with it all. I was lucky enough to use equipment I would have never learned about on my own time. Simply because a lot of the equipment was professional and pretty expensive. Only people who are making something professional and know a thing or two about camera settings would even consider paying those prices. I wouldn’t spend that much on cameras and lighting unless I was confident I was going to profit from it. I will always remember the connections I made by being in there as well. I met many students that were in my major who I never had came in contact with before. Since we ended up seeing each other everyday, we all formed stronger bonds and some became friends. NPACE showed me how much talent was walking around in my own neighborhood. All the projects I started on are finished and now I just have to focus on my classes for these next few days. After school I plan on using the skills I practiced in NPACE. Even if I don’t get a job in the communication field, I will still be keeping up with the technology and getting better. Not to finally land a communication job, but to someday create some of my own.

Dana Coburn – What a Versatile Staff Can Do!

Throughout this semester, I have formed some great relationships with my co-workers here at The Rankin Gardens and Atrium. Having such a versatile staff, The Rankin department has had the opportunity to use our different connections in hopes of being able to expand our business to different audience that have never been interested in, or informed of The Rankin. Having these outlets is making it easier to attract interested clients. The different types of connections that this staff has provided are, undergraduate students; main campus and downtown campus, and graduate students. Those two large connections then gives us outlets to, Greek life, Campus Nerds, SGA, and all other related organizations.

More specifically, these connections have been so beneficial to me as a senior in college, and I have been extremely willing to help out with advertising this venue through my active involvement in the student life; Greek life. I am in the Delta Zeta sorority and have made several relationships with other organizations throughout my four years as a CSU student that have given me the audience to begin with. My status as an intern has intrigued the students, and they have been askingĀ  all about The Rankin and possible events at the venue. So far we have booked two student events for this semester, and both organizations have said they did not know anything about The Rankin until my internship began.

This is a great step towards expanding this venue and increasing the awareness. There is so much competition out there within our community and I think it is very important for the students of Columbus State University to know that they are able to come here at a discounted price. Also, because we are connected with the college, we are more willing to work with their requests and lower budgets. Saying that, all of our positions a t I believe that my position in school, and my connections at The Rankin have given this venue a new platform to work off of.
