Two Students to Work at the Winter Olympics
Bethany Nollette, 20, and Anya Radanovich, 21, both San Jose area natives who are studying sport management through Pacific's Department of Sport Sciences, will work as volunteers in Whistler, British Columbia, Winter Olympics area.
The Whistler area will host skiing, Bobsledding, snowboarding and hockey events. Both students are avid snowboarders.
Both applied to be considered as volunteers and were notified last semester that they were accepted. They will fly to Canada on Feb. 8 to receive training and credentials. They will return the first week of March.
During their time at the Olympics, both said they will Twitter and blog their experiences. They have set up a blog at http://bloggers.com/AnyaBethany. Their joint Twitter account can be found at http://twitter.com/anyabethvan2010. They also will take videos and post those on the University's YouTube site at http://www.youtube.com/PacificTigers.
The volunteer experience will count as an internship for both students. Nollette, a junior, said that after she graduates she hopes to go into media relations. Radanovich, a senior, is looking for a career in sports marketing.
