STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: SUONG LE IN CHARGE

Suong Le may be small, but don’t let her size fool you. She is a strong leader with big responsibilities and has successfully led the University Services student marketing team since January 2011.

As student supervisor, Le oversees and delegates tasks to the student employees and leads weekly team meetings. She also works alongside full-time University Services staff to coordinate and plan departmental events, programs and activities such as new student orientations and the benefits fair.

A big part of the teams’ marketing efforts goes to green education and awareness campaigns on campus for Green UH. Throughout the year, Le and her team can be seen manning the games and tables at events such as Green UH Day, Earth Day and RecycleMania. Last spring, the team also performed a “green audit” to campus auxiliary partners to create Green Showcase boards in the businesses in order to commend their green efforts and educate their customers.

“I’m very proud of the sustainability projects that we participate in. I hope to further educate my peers on how to be more green on campus,” Le said.

Before joining the marketing team, Le spent a semester working at the Campus Recreation and Wellness center in spring 2008. She first learned about the University Services student marketing team from her sister, Mai, who was on staff with the team. Le applied for a position with the staff and joined the group in January 2010.

“I like the learning experience you get from this job and I enjoy the new faces I get to meet from day to day,” she said.

Le balances her time between her job and studies and also became involved in the PALS program last year where she mentored 6 different students. The UH program pairs up new students with existing students on campus in order to ease their transition into college. Also throughout her college career, Le was formerly the historian, secretary and vice president external for the UH Vietnamese Students Association.

Le is originally from New Orleans, Louisiana but grew up in Houston. She followed the footsteps of her brother, sister-in-law, and sister’s footsteps by coming to UH. She will graduate in May 2012.
