Now that SJU is officially in full swing, you may be asking yourself; what is there to do in my free time? Many SJU students ask this question. Being involved is something that we all “want” to do, but when it comes down to it we struggle to find where exactly we fit in. What is the best option to enhance the college experience?

When I began my internship with Bleacher Creatures this summer, I had no clue what to expect from this experience. Many questions surfaced. What will be expected of me? What will the next 11 to 12 weeks entail? What will I take away from the internship?
All I can say is my internship was an amazing experience and would like to thank Bleacher Creatures for the opportunity to intern with such a dynamic company this summer. It was an experience that afforded me a chance to work with and learn from a knowledgeable and experienced staff,
This summer I have been interning for a local company called Bleacher Creatures. For those who have never heard of Bleacher Creatures, they make plush figures of sports players, as well as entertainment icons. Bleacher Creatures creates each figure to represent the uniqueness of the individual. From there small beginning in 2011, the company has grown to what it is today with partnerships with the NLB, MBA, NFL and MLS with more then 1000 player dolls, along with additional licensing deals with DC Comics and Warner Bros.
Interning at Bleacher Creatures so far has been a blast!
When I am asked what my major is at Saint Joseph’s University, I often receive quizzical looks when I provide the response, Sports Marketing . Many times I get asked why Sports Marketing? Many do not understand the premise behind the major of Sports Marketing. Many times I hear from family and friends “Sports Management?” No, it is not Sports Management it is Sports Marketing. Sports Management as a major, prepares you for a variety of careers, primarily in the area of administration, facility, organization and event management. Where, Sports Marketing is a major in its own right, it is a subset of the much broader field of business and marketing.
