Involvement Fair Springs Into Action

The University doesn’t often have involvement fairs in the spring, but over 100 students turned out for what faculty and club leaders alike described as a very successful event. Thirty-six stands were set up in the meeting halls on the second floor of the student center, each allowing some of the University’s most interesting and active groups a chance to introduce themselves to students.

All manners of students attended the event. The crowd was a colorful mix of freshmen, transfer students and upperclassmen who had yet to explore all of their club interests. Some came simply to support a friend’s club, even if they weren’t members themselves.

The event began with a slow trickle of students. In the first half hour, those perusing the stands came sporadically and in small groups. As classes let out and word got around, larger groups began filing through the double doors.

Laura Fiorelli of The Monmouth Review said, “I feel that not as many people are here compared to the fall, but the interest is clear.”

The Monmouth Review was one of the many clubs at the fair. Also attending were The Outlook, the Student Activities Board, the Monmouth Math Club, Study Abroad Club, the Running Interest Group, Community Service Club and the Outdoors Club, among others.

Outdoors Club Goes Indoors

Surf Portion of Outdoors Club Gives Paddle Boarding Lessons in University Pool


odcThe surf portion of the Outdoors Club had their first gathering this past Sunday, February 12. Steve Steger, junior and surf chair of the Outdoors Club, gave paddle board lessons in the University pool.

The club reserved the pool in advance from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Eight members came out in addition to Professor William Reynolds, advisor of the club. The club brought two of their own paddle boards and one hybrid kayak/paddle board which was supplied by Steve Steger.

Steger described paddle boarding as similar to surfing but with a larger board. Like surfing you stand and balance on the board, but unlike surfing you don’t need a wave or even momentum to stand on the board. This made a still pool the ideal place to practice before jumping into the rough waters of the ocean. You use the paddle to sustain balance as well as to steer.

Kyle Reinhardt, senior and President of the Outdoors Club is happy with the club’s absorption of the Surf Club and likes where Steger is going with it. “I think the paddle board lessons are a great way to start off the season,” Reinhardt said. “I’m excited that people enjoyed it and I think it will increase interest in the club as well as give us an opportunity to expand our activities,” he said.

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. To stay up to date about who is speaking when follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/speakerseries .

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.”
