Her Campus Millersville: What organizations are you involved in on campus?
Catrina Snyder: I was in UAB my freshman year, and I’m in Alpha Sigma Alpha ever since the fall of 2010, I used to be Fundraising Chairman and now I am the Ritual Chairman.
HCM: What campus jobs do you hold?
CS: I’ve worked at the old Galley, the Anchor and now the new Galley and starting next semester, I will be student manager of the Galley. Galley Student Manager entails making the schedule, helping with hiring, dealing with customer complaints and any necessary disciplinary action towards employees. My favorite part about working at the Galley is I get to work directly with people and meet new people every day. It’s relatively simple and I don’t have to work weekends!
HCM: Have you had any internships?
CS: No, but this summer I will be doing an internship back home in Williamsport, PA working for First National Bank. I will be a bank teller, but working for different locations in the Lycoming County area, wherever they need me.
HCM: What is your favorite part about your sorority ASA?
CS: I get to be a part of something bigger than me. ASA has taught me so much; it’s helped me become a better person.
HCM: Would you recommend someone joining Greek life?
Luke Blum has been a surfing and skating enthusiast ever since he could walk. So it was no surprise when he started the Landsurfers longboarding club last semester as only a freshman.
The Millersville broadcasting major is even sponsored by top names such as Globe Shoes, SMX optics and BambooSk8, all manufacturers of longboards.
The Landsurfers Longboarding Club was established to gather students together to form friendships through common activities such as longboarding, discussing the growth of the sport, aid beginners in improving their skills and teaching longboard safety.
“I wanted to start the club because I was tired of seeing students ride around on longboards alone. No one should ever have to do that.” said Blum. “There is nothing better than riding with a group of people who are having a great time and pushing each other to get better.”
And what about meetings you ask? Even though there is currently no consistent meeting schedule, when a member in the club decides they want to meet up to longboard, all they have to do is send out a mass text to end up having a great time.
“We are a very tight knit group of friends. We had 4 new members come out and they are already part of the family,” said Blum.
Although longboarding is a male dominated sport, Blum encourages women to come out and join. There are many all-woman sponsored longboarding teams in the sport. As of now there are only four female members and they are all doing a great job.
