Usually my weeks are pretty normal. I go to my two classes and put in between 45 and 55 hours in the sports information office for my six-credit internship/job…this week didn’t seem like it would be any different, until Wednesday night. On that evening the Augustana men’s lacrosse played on the road at MSOE (Milwaukee School of Engineering) and I sat in Carver and watched the game online and wrote the story. Seeing as Carver Center is pretty creepy when you’re in there by yourself at 11 p.m. I usually have one of my friends come keep me company. So I finished posting the story recapping the win on the athletic website and we were getting ready to leave. When we went to leave all of the lights had been turned off and public safety had locked the glass door into the coaches offices…we were locked INSIDE of Carver. When I called Public Safety to inform them that they locked us into the offices I could them laughing on the other end because of how ridiculous the request for them to let us out of Carver sounded. About ten minutes went by and we were set free.
My boss has been sending letters of recommendation on my behalf to different institutions that I have applied for internships at and the following day he sent a letter to Villanova and referenced the incident as an example of my dedication… I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about that one.
