How did you get involved with joining the basketball managerial team?
Karen: “I was looking for an internship or volunteer opportunity on campus and I found an opening randomly for a managerial position. I am really interested in sports and working with athletes. I love basketball, it’s my favorite sport, so I love that I get to watch the game courtside. I’ve made good friends on the team and with the staff, so it really worked out for me. I also get to travel with the team, on occasion, which is a lot of fun.”
What else are you involved with on campus?
Karen: “I am currently on the field hockey club team and I wanted to join for fun. I really enjoy it even though I’ve never learned the rules or played competitively before. I also attend practices but don’t play competitively for the club soccer team. I like to be active and play sports with my friends, too” Karen, right, with her friends.
Do you have any other interests outside of those endeavors?
Karen: “I volunteer at the Stony Brook Hospital, March of Dimes, and I sometimes work at a nursing home.”
Favorite moment at Stony Brook so far?
Karen: “Spending Homecoming with my all friends.”
