Name: Kevis Georgakopoulos Pinto

Current Year: Junior

First Year Dorm: Caneris

Internships: Comcast SportsNet - Marketing

Area of interest: Sports Marketing, Sponsorship, and Coaching

What is your favorite memory from your first year at Drexel?
I didn't start off at Drexel as a freshman, I studies for a year and a half at a University in Rio de Janeiro. My first year here I really enjoyed being able to make new friends while playing intramural and club sports.

What is the most important thing that you learned about sport management and the sports industry?
That networking is key. The industry is smaller than it seems and all the people know each other. To get into sport business you need to be willing to sacrifice a lot of hours for not a very high pay. 

What advice would you give to the freshman based on your experience?
Start networking now, and if possible start looking at some internships or volunteer experience to build up a strong resume.

If you could do it all over again, what would you do different?
I would've gotten involved earlier, volunteering and interning since freshman year. The more experience you can get, the better!
