North Central College students help New Orleans host the Super Bowl

Sport Management Association members gain experience and build memories volunteering at the Super Bowl.

While the Super Bowl may already be a distant memory for many, 15 members of North Central’s Sport Management Association (SMA) are still pinching themselves as they recall rubbing elbows with sports celebrities and gaining admission to the country’s most popular sporting event, held this year in New Orleans.

“I had goosebumps the entire time I was in the Superdome,” says Matt Meindl  ’14, a management and sport management double major. “And experiencing New Orleans’ culture was also a thrill of a lifetime.”

Brianna Tolliver

“North Central’s sport management program is unlike anyone else’s. I met people who are in the jobs I want to be in and I chose internships where I’m doing what I want to do.”

Brianna’s studies in sport management exposed her to what goes on behind the scenes of athletic competition. An internship with the athletic department taught her how to run a meet, recruit, set up equipment, and work with men’s and women’s programs. Her classes covered topics from economics to human resource management. Her role as a sportscaster with the student-run WONC-FM reinforced her desire to work at ESPN someday.

That desire was fueled when she attended the NCAA Sports and Entertainment Summit. “I networked with people from all over the country. It was a great experience that every sport management major should do.”
