Shadow PR Talks Sports

Zack Rosenberg, Director of Sponsorship for the Lakewood BlueClaws comes to Monmouth University Wednesday, February 8 at 3:00 pm to discuss with Shadow PR members about their PR skills and working in sports.

“As a sports communication minor, I believe it is a wonderful opportunity to have Mr. Rosenberg speak to the chapter. Hearing about sports PR from someone who is in the industry will be beneficial as I approach graduation” states Ali Nudo, one of Shadow PR’s account executives.

Rosenberg has been with the BlueClaws since 2006 when he started as a marketing manager. Then in 2009 he moved up to assistant director of sponsorship. Finally, in 2011 he became the director. Prior to his work with the BlueClaws he gained experiences at Octagon as an intern.

Rosenberg’s relationship with Shadow PR is new but he has already helped the firm get on their feet by connecting them to their first official client, the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce where he serves on the board of directors.

The PRSSA bi-monthly Speaker Series was instituted in 2009 to provide networking opportunities for public relations students and professionals.

You Can Never Have Too Much Energy

Spotlight on Monmouth University Energy Service Corps


ESC 1“The Energy Service Corps is a joint partner of New Jersey Public Interest Research Group and AmeriCorps,” said Tom McKeon, Monmouth University Energy Service Corps Organizer.  

“AmeriCorps is like the domestic peace corps and NJPIRG finds issues which concern the public such as hunger, homelessness, textbook rip-offs, sustainable university, etc,” said McKeon.

According to McKeon, energy efficiency also falls into a category that concerns the public. The United States is currently using energy at an unsustainable rate, which means they are using energy quicker than the energy can be made. “Currently 80 percent of our energy comes from dirty sources such as coal, gas, and oil which not only pollute our environment but costs more and more each year,” said McKeon.

McKeon’s role in the Energy Service Corps is to create connections for students so they can develop leadership skills and successful work on the campaigns.

To Write Love on Her Arms

Monmouth Becomes First N.J. College to Adopt a Chapter of TWLOHA


TWLOHA 1

Your life matters. This is one of the main ideas that the non-profit organization, To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) stresses. Sophomore Sarah Vander Wall is bringing a chapter of TWLOHA to the University this semester, as well as making Monmouth the first college in New Jersey where TWLOHA is recognized.

According to their website, twloha.com, “To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.”

The idea of TWLOHA is that no one person is alone, no matter how much it may seem that way. The site goes on to state, “We know that pain is very real. It is our privilege to suggest that hope is real, and that help is real.”

“We live in a difficult world,” TWLOHA explains on their website, and yet “you’re part of a bigger story. You need to know that your life matters.”

Speak Up and Spread Love

Delta Phi Epsilon Creates Website to Raise Awareness on Eating Disorders


LOVE“Love yourself unconditionally just as you love those closest to you despite their faults.”

This is just one of the many quotes that the girls of the University’s Delta Phi Epsilon sorority have displayed on the new website they developed to raise awareness about the commonality of eating disorders.

“I just want to spread awareness and let people know that you’re not alone; you can get better,” said website creator and Delta Phi Epsilon’s Vice President of Programming, junior, Marisa Meiskin.

Meiskin created the website and it has been revamped a few times since then. Upon returning from Winter Break, the website went through Head of Greek Life, Tyler Havens and then Delta Phi Epsilon’s headquarters before a press release was written about the site and it went out on the national website.

“I feel like every girl experiences body issues, you just have to learn to cope with it,” said Meiskin.

The Great Trip to the Great White North

University Snowriders Travel to Mt. Tremblant Canada


SR 1The Snowriders Club went on a snowboarding and skiing trip to Mount Tremblant in Quebec, Canada over winter break. The trip lasted from January 8 through 13.

“Mount Tremblant is one of the best mountains, and if you are able to experience it, it is truly life changing,” said Angela Rosa, President of the Snowriders Club, “Fresh powder with trails that are four miles long which is amazing.” Rosa has been President of the Snowriders Club for two years.

After a seven-hour bus ride, the Snowriders Club arrived in Canada. There were 31 club members on the trip in total, which was a decrease in the 102 members that attended the trip last winter break. “I was actually very pleased of how amazing this trip actually was,” said Rosa. “Since it was such a small group, everyone on the trip became very close.”

The Snowriders Club meets three times a semester to organize fundraisers and prepare for the trips as well as interest meetings. The Snowriders had no budget this year, according to Rosa, which made it difficult to put the trip together and cover the all of expenses. Although, according to Professor William Reynolds, a faculty advisor on the trip, the Club did receive $1,278 in special funding.

The Other Girls

Monmouth Dance Team Takes Third in The Battle of the Northeast Competition


DANCEIf you have ever been to a University football or basketball game than you have certainly seen this hard working group of students perform, whether it be during a time-out of a basketball game or half time at a football game. I’m not talking about the Cheerleading Squad. I’m not talking about the Pep Band. I’m talking about the Dance Team.

The University Dance Team was officially recognized during the spring semester of 2001. The team performs at every home football game as well as every home men and women’s basketball game. This year the dance team consists of nine girls; three freshman, one sophomore, four juniors and one senior.

Lauren Buonpane, junior math education major, is captain of the dance team, and has been dancing for 15 years. Buonpane came to the University with plans to join the dance team. “I love being able to dance after all these years,” explained Buonpane, “and being involved with the University is great.” As captain Buonpane holds the responsibility of running practices every Monday, Wednesday and Sunday, helping choreograph the dances and being a leader. Buonpane said, “Being a junior and being captain is a lot of work, but the team has really come together this year and I am proud of all the girls for the effort they put in every week.”
