Samantha Manguiat – Sport Management

Class of 2015

I will be receiving my Bachelor’s in Sport Management this May, class of 2015. Currently, for my final internship I am working with the Event Presentation department for the New York Rangers Hockey Club.
Pursuing a career in sports I knew that being a Gator would allow me to reach my goal because of their excellent athletic program and competing in the Southeastern Conference. I began working with the Communications department and spent every Saturdays at the Swamp assisting in the press box. After three great semesters, I spent my final academic semester gaining experience with the Marketing department and contributing ideas that were implemented to Gator sports.

It was not only my determination that helped me get to where I am now, I owe much thanks to several staff, professors, and my academic advisor whom I reached out to several times for guidance and supervision. Choosing to become part of the Gator Nation played a vital role with what I have accomplished and my success so far.

After graduation I hope to work for a team where I can contribute creative marketing ideas for the enjoyment of the dedicated fans and hope to make an impact to their experience with the team and brand.
