As a high school gymnast and diver, Shauna Hines ’18 considered becoming a student-athlete before choosing Carolina for academics. Once she arrived, she applied for a job at Campus Recreation as a work-study option.

“I figured I would be in the gym behind a desk or doing laundry, but I was able to solve problems for patrons. Being behind the scenes to make the facilities run smoothly was a lot of fun for me,” Shauna said.

She started as an operations ambassador and worked her way up to zone manager, the highest supervisory level a student can reach. She books facilities, assists patrons and manages student staff. Her involvement has led her to discover a career in higher education; she hopes to pursue a master’s degree in student affairs next year. She is passionate about aiding students in their development process during college.

“I want to help people personally and professionally through student affairs,” Shauna said. “I didn’t know what I wanted to do, and so many people have helped me along the way. No matter what, I’m going to be helping students.”
