Proud to be a Coog, Bethel Glumac is determined to get involved in her school. She has filled her schedule with a variety of interests and is quickly being recognized as a leader on campus, even as a freshman. Not only is this Cougar Village resident busy, but she is also ambitious, talented, smart and now can add conscientious to her list of traits after becoming the newest addition to the Green UH team.

A communications and media productions major, Glumac began her internship with Green UH as part of the new Sustaining the City course (HON 439H, 24024) offered this Spring. The course gives students the opportunity to get hands on experience and work with government and nonprofit agencies as well as programs and groups within the university dedicated to sustainability while earning credit for the class. Glumac said she signed up for the course because the internship aspect appealed to her and she felt learning the elements of sustaining a city would be an important part of the communications field.

�I would like to learn more about the typical day and job of someone involved in public relations and communications to see if it is something I could see myself spending the rest of my life doing,� Glumac said.

Glumac began her internship just in time for RecycleMania. As part of her duties, she will be learning to promote the Green UH message through press releases, photographs, marketing strategies and through participating in events throughout the semester.

�Not only is this internship convenient because it is on campus, the people working there are very amiable, and I feel I can learn a lot from them. I think the part I will find most enjoyable is coming up with communication strategies and working on my interviewing and writing skills,� she said.

A League City native, Glumac has a long history with UH. Her father has worked for the university for 25 years and she also has a sister here studying engineering. She said she is proud of the strides UH has made in their green initiatives.

�I admire the sustainability movement here at UH. They are doing a good job of keeping up. It�s important to show students that their university is cognizant of present-day issues, such as recycling. It can really increase school pride. Also, last year�s first place trophy (in Texas for RecycleMania) for UH showed the rest of the nation that we are serious and competitive contenders,� Glumac said.

On top of her internship, Glumac also works as a copy editor and occasional writer for The Daily Cougar. She is also the secretary/treasurer of Residence Halls Association, a group that creates events to bring all the residence halls together, and completes at least eight office hours a week for the organization. Glumac is part of Honors Advocates and the Student Government of the Honors College. This semester, her involvement has also extended to reactivate African-American Honor Student Association (AAHSA), and she was also selected to become part of the Orientation Team at UH.

In what spare time she has left, Glumac shows her multitude of talents through her hobbies. Recently, she formed a passion for volleyball and became captain of the intramural team last semester and made the club volleyball team this spring. She is active in her church where she attends church-related activities and plays the piano.

�I can also play the viola, but have recently found the piano to be more enjoyable. I also enjoy reading, writing fiction, just hanging out every once in a while, getting to know people, baking and challenging myself,� she said. �Oh, and I�m a cat person.�
