What an amazing experience this summer has been! I learned more during my time at the Cleveland Browns than I could have ever imagined. My favorite part was getting my first corporate experience, taking everything I have learned during my first three years of college and applying it to the real world. What better of a place to apply that knowledge than at the Browns’ organization? Now that I am back at UF and into my final semester of college, my view on my academic studies has been transformed. I am able to take my summer experience inside corporate America and apply that knowledge to my courses this fall. Graduation for me is just right around the corner in December! Even though I am on a great path, I am anxiously anticipating the opportunities that I will take on once … Read More »
Cleveland hosts first preseason game against the Redskins.
The Cleveland Browns officially kicked off their season recently under the lights with the Redskins. All my managers showed up looking official and sharp as can be with headsets in place and their game day faces on. That evening, the three of them would be managing all the game day operations for that evening, such as coordinating the drum line, flag runners, mascots, and also delegating responsibilities to other team staff members such as myself. I was fortunate to be up close on the field, shadowing my boss and assisting her with game day management.
The average fan attending a game might not notice all that goes on during game time. Managing the scoreboard, graphics, microphone disbursement, half-time performers, the kick-off kid and escorting … Read More »
When those gates open at 8:15 a.m., you bet every tent, barricade, table linen, chair, free poster, and inflatable is in its place before the Dawg Pound enters those gates! Even though we are required to arrive at 6 a.m., my alarm will sound at at the early hour of 4:30. After much preparation, working actual training camp is when the fun starts. Cleveland Browns fans come from all over the country, and even the world to see their favorite team prepare for the upcoming season. If watching the players up close, unlimited rides on the inflatable obstacle courses, give-aways and autographs sessions are not enough to bring fans in, then I do not know what is!
We have many responsibilities daily which are rotated each camp day, including setting everything up, scanning tickets, working the Browns Backers Worldwide tent, coordinating … Read More »
Training Camp ’15 is beginning! It’s a month-long summer event where Browns practices are free and open to the public, and fans can celebrate the beginning of another great season. One might find zip-lines, puppies up for adoption, bouncy houses, football toss games, ice cream, merchandise for sale, and best of all— great views of the players in action! So much goes into preparation for this main summer event for the Cleveland Browns.
Our intern duties include setting up bleachers, fencing, signage, tents, barricades, providing golf cart courier service and any other task that needs to be completed in order for Training Camp to come together. Above, you can see just some of the fruits of our efforts.
All of our hard work will finally pay off when those thousands of excited fans line up outside the gates to come watch their … Read More »
I love food. I love all types of food. I love looking at pictures of food. I love watching TV shows about food. I love making it, eating it, buying it, thinking about it. There were a few serious years of my life in which I considered pursuing it and becoming a pastry chef, and eating my way through my working yearsâ€” bouncing from brownie to pastry to triple layer chocolate cake to souffle and get paid for it.
Instead, I decided to come to terms with my Food Network addiction and nurse it as a hobby instead, though I will admit I still haven’t ruled out the possibility of one day having my own cooking show, and still occasionally dream about becoming the … Read More »
