First off, this was much more difficult than I had anticipated. However, I am extremely happy with the final product. From start to finish, this took me about a month. I'm happy to share with you all the steps including trials and tribulations I went through while engaged in this project! Enjoy!

What: My idea is to update the Women’s Rugby (SBUWRFC) page on the SBU website. The current page can be viewed here: http://www.sbu.edu/campus-life.aspx?id=5348&terms=women's%20rugby. As you may notice, the last time this page was updated was at least two-and-a-half years ago. Since then, the team has grown considerably in terms of members and successes and is in desperate need of updating. I know this because I am a member of the women’s team. On the updated site, I will include current stats, player’s names, a brief history, team schedule, current standings and perhaps pictures and a video.
Why: I am beginning my seventh semester as a member on this team. My first semester as a freshman, we ended our season 0-5. Last fall I helped lead the team as captain to compete in Nationals for the first time in nearly 10 years. We ended 4th in the nation, the furthest the women’s rugby team has ever advanced. Needless to say, we need a website to not only tell of our recent successes, but also to inform incoming freshman who might be interested in the sport. Not to mention the fact that it would help us get our name out there and for all to see that we are a force to be reckoned with. I ultimately want this website to be a true depiction of what our team has become.
How: I spoke with Rob Defazio recently and he is setting up a day for me to meet with a member from the PR department. The PR man will help me update the site (he has a layout I can use, so I will not be working from scratch) to the best of my ability. Depending on the difficulty of the renovation of the site, I am incredibly interested in incorporating a video on the main page. I would interview the current captains, president and advisor. In the video they would describe what an average day of practice is like, why someone should join, what we’re all about and maybe digress into how to play the sport. Creating a video is something I am passionate about since my concentration is in broadcast journalism. However, this may end up being an added challenge depending on how time-consuming the entire revamp of the page is.
Significance: I am clearly passionate about this team. Since being a part of it, I have seen us at our worst and at our best. Therefore, I think we deserve the best, or at least an updated website! Not only do we practice and play hard, we help out in the community (with BonaResponds) and do all we can to give ourselves a good name. Playing rugby for this team has helped me create life-long friendships, relationships, and of course has shaped me into a better athlete. Renovating the site is the least I can do for what the sport of rugby has done for me.
Problems: I do not foresee any giant problems. As aforementioned, the only thing I might run into is not having enough time to create the video to put on the site. I have full intentions of doing this and will try, but I am going to take it one step at a time, starting with updating the website first.

Assignment: Short write-up: What has been your most memorable internship experience so far:
Tuesday, June 7, 2011
At 9:40 a.m. on June 8, 1991 I came into this world as a blonde and chubby six pound, six ounce baby girl. Two minutes earlier, my twin sister, Kelly, had been pulled from my mother’s cesarean-sectioned belly. Yep. A whole 9 months swimming around with another naked human being… gross. Kelly and I “miracle babies” accounted for the final of four children had by my parents.

ST. BONAVENTURE (May 9) —Sandra Mulryan had her eyes closed backstage and exhaled to finish the last of her breathing exercises. She glanced at her watch. With the remaining five minutes until show time, she thought about uncorrected papers and lesson plans for class and if her husband and six grown children in the audience had eaten dinner. Finally, she rolled onstage in a wheelchair as Mrs. Bramson in Night Must Fall and spoke her first line.
Faculty and staff at St. Bonaventure University who participate in non-classroom activities say they have different reasons as to why they get involved in other activities.

ST. BONAVENTURE (April 13)—Alexandra Notaro awoke with a jolt. She smacked her hand to her forehead to wipe away the tiny droplets outlining her brow. She got up, walked across the room to the radiator, turned the knob all the way to the right but found the valve already closed. She stood next to the open window, took a deep breath and shook her head.
At the center of St. Bonaventure University’s campus lies the central boiler plant, a building holding a heating system crucial to the comfort of all those on campus in the winter.
Although the system first produced heat in 1949, 30 years after the central boiler plant’s construction, Philip Winger, associate vice president for facilities, called the system efficient and reliable. Students, however, find the system unreliable and regulation difficult.
