My GSIMC experience – CT Nguyen

During this last year, GSIMC has organized a number of events to help students engage in networking and career development opportunities. If we had not had the best Treasurer like CT, nothing would have been successfully done.

Today CT, our very best Treasurer, shares his GSIMC experience.

Hi all,

My name is CT and I am currently the Treasurer of GSIMC. Originally from Vietnam, I obtained my BA in Media Communication with a concentration in Public Relations from Roger Williams University in the small town of Bristol, Rhode Island.

Before accepting this position, I had no idea how much fun I was going to have or how many new friends I was going to make. I was always thought that the Treasurer would only deal with the financial situation of the organization. Which it does, but this position also does a lot more than that. After this experience, I can truly say that this position has helped my transition to Emerson College easier. I have learned and grown personally and professionally through networking and through the events that were held by GSIMC. It was also fun being in a position where I can spread the IMC love to the rest of the Emerson community.

I am excited to see what the new officers will bring to the table and I believe that their plans will only strengthen and improve the reputation of GSIMC.

*** Please send email to GSIMC (emerson.gsimc@gmail.com) by November 16 (Friday) at midnight if you are ready to fulfill your experience at Emerson College with GSIMC. We are opening four positions, President, Vice President, Event Planner, and Treasurer. Please attach your brief bio (5 to 7 sentences) to explain yourself and why you’re qualified to GSIMC. Applying multiple positions is acceptable.

My GSIMC experience – Haley Nagle

We all know that current GSIMC officers, Haley, Jamie, Shilpa, and CT, have done a tremendous job since last fall. Not only did they contribute their time and efforts, all events, held by GSIMC, encouraged IMC students to bond together and impart the knowledge. After a year of committment, they are about to deliver torches to the next GSIMC officers.

What does GSIMC mean to current four officers? What did they learn from GSIMC? What are suggestions to the next candidates?

Our dearest President Haley shares her valuable GSIMC experience.

Hi everyone!

My name is Haley and I am the current President of GSIMC. I am a second year IMC student, originally from San Francisco, California. I received my undergraduate degree from Cal Poly State University in Journalism with a concentration in Public Relations.

Getting involved in GSIMC, made my transition into Emerson and the Boston area so much easier and WAY more fun. It has been a great way to meet new people, network and get to know the college and faculty better. I can truly say that all of us on the Executive Board have become great friends who support one another and all share the same goal in making our Emerson College experience the best it can possibly be. I will always cherish the time we spent together and how we helped make a difference within the IMC community.

I cannot wait to see what the 2013 GSIMC Executive Board has in store for us! I am certain that they will do great things. Remember to believe in yourself, take risks and most importantly, have fun!
