UT Austin - Athletics

Spring 2017

Position: Student Assistant
Student: Sociology Senior

During the off-season, this will be the most relax time of the school year. Since I work with other girls, I only work a couple hours a day. Most of my day is tracking down receipts for our expense reports, or making sure all the travel plans for the coaches are verified. Every day, I will be in the Athletic Directors office getting a signature for paperwork, or answering the phones. Usually during the office season, the coaches are out recruiting, so there will be days when the office is quiet, but normally you will begin working on summer camp activities like organizing the medical forms for the campers and making sure we have all our staff for the camp. During the season, you will be required to attend most if not all the home games. My job is to make sure all our recruits and parents have saved seats in the student section and accommodate them however I can. The coaches will be busy with the game, so you will be the first line of contact. Besides the game, you will oversee the ticketing for our high school coaches in Texas and any special guests. It’s important to keep a positive and professional attitude in the office as our phones are busy during the season from our supporters. During the summer, mainly in June, you will be working with our Summer Camp, the main job. It will be your job to help plan and execute the entire camps during the summer. You will be present to answer all questions that parents have, make sure food is available, and make sure all the campers’ medical forms are in file before they can play at UT. You will also have to deal with payment, scheduling, and any other projects associated with the camps itself.
