Student Employee Spotlight –
University Services Marketing Team

If you’ve been to a major UH event that involves green initiatives, parking, university bookstore or campus dining, there’s a good chance that you’ve met a member of the University Services Student Marketing Team.

“I like their work ethic and passion for UH, their commitment to communicate to their peers about university services,” said Maria Honey, the University Services Marketing Manager who supervises the student marketing team.

The dedicated group of fifteen students on the marketing team is tasked with promoting, planning and communicating various events sponsored by University Services. Events such as Green UH Day, Earth Day, Commuter Fair and education information tables for the various departments overseen by University Services often have a strong presence from the student team. For members of the student marketing team, it’s more than just having a presence at events, it’s about helping the university.

As current members graduate, the Marketing team looks for new students to join in August and January. “We recruit students at the campus job fair and through Facebook,” said Honey. Students are encouraged to become fans of the UH University Services fanpage to stay informed about campus services, events and student employment opportunities. "We look for passionate energetic students who enjoy sharing information with others and like to have fun in the process."

“I love it. It’s never the same thing. It’s a great opportunity to meet people and do great things for our university,” said Tim Jones, a senior computer science major, who has been on the team since Fall of 2009.

The evolution of Green UH events, development of the campus community garden, and communication campaigns for parking and the bookstore services on youtube have all been part of the student marketing team’s portfolio of creative work. Relationships with other departments and the community have also strengthened with the help of the student marketing team. University Services has been a growing office over the past two years and there is no question from any staff member that the student marketing team has been the pulse of the office.

“They are our best ambassadors,” said Honey.
