B.A. Public Relations (2018)
Marissa Gonzalez was the Social Media Strategist at the UH Campus Recreation center for this past year and was responsible for re-launching our “I’m Here To” campaign. Marissa shares a behind-the-scenes look at her process for managing the Rec’s most prided campaign: She searches for people who find comfort in going to our facility, who see it as a home away from home of sorts. She then interviews said individual and photographs them engaging in what they enjoy the most about the Rec. With these two articles, she writes their story and shares it to all of our followers on our social media profiles and website during a scheduled #WYSW (What’s Your Story Wednesday). Marissa describes working at the rec as “fun and exciting every single day,” and it has helped her grow as both a professional and an individual. Outside of work, she enjoys aerial yoga, concerts, exploring the city, and spending time with her family. While working with us has been described as a great experience for Marissa, we would describe it as an even more so incredible experience for our facility. Marissa leaves behind an excellent legacy in her contributions to the UH Rec and we can only imagine the way she will impact the world the way she has impacted all of us.
