I recently served as a Facility and Event Management Intern under the Director of Moody Coliseum at Southern Methodist University. As an intern, I assisted the director in the oversight of Moody Coliseum and Crum Basketball Center and the day-to-day operations that take place within the facilities. Additionally, I coordinated with our in-house janitorial and maintenance staff to ensure that our athletic facilities are in the best possible conditions in order to satisfy our fans, student-athletes, and administration. My experience at SMU includes working game day operations, set-up, and tear down for our Division I NCAA competitions in Football, Men’s and Women’s Basketball and Volleyball, along with special events such as this year’s nationally televised live broadcast of the Collegiate Slam Dunk & 3 Point contest. For football, I served as an on the field replay assistant for the American Athletic Conference. During this year’s basketball season, I was entrusted with overseeing all handicap seating areas along with acclimating ushers and security personnel to the coliseums new seating layout that came as a result of the $50 million renovations that took place this past year.
