Huntsman Marketing Association chosen to co-promote comedian Brian Regan!
As a student of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business, I was encouraged to take ownership of my education. This led me to many different clubs and organizations across the campus, but one of the best opportunities I have had has been a project through the Huntsman Marketing Association. Today I was able to participate in a phone conference with Troy Oldham, HMA’s advisor, and Matt Leishman, a fellow Aggie and now the marketing assistant for United Concerts. In this phone conference we discussed how HMA could help co-promote comedian Brian Regan, who is coming to Logan on February 18-19. With the success of ticket sales so far, both Friday night and Saturday afternoon have less than 50 seats left; they have added a third show Saturday night. When they asked for our help, I thought they were desperate to fill seats, but it’s the opposite. The Ellen Eccles Theater seats over 1000 and it is already half full! United Concerts and Brian Regan are not looking for cheap labor to sell seats, but are giving Utah State students a chance to get real hands on experience in their preferred career. This just proves how willing the community and faculty members are to invest in the education of Utah State students. I have already started to see the benefits. It’s amazing the types of opportunities you will find in the Huntsman school when students get involved.
