A Beach Team volunteer is an incoming first year or transfer student who commits to ASI to learn the intricacies of student government and develop their leadership skills. Because first semester students aren’t able to hold official positions on campus, ASI provides Beach Team as an opportunity to learn about student government and other ASI programs to help acquaint them with the right role for their interests. Beach Team is designed to provide opportunities for participation that encompass the values and practices of student government while promoting outreach, involvement and teamwork on campus.

ASI Video Productions
Video productions interns and volunteers work as a part of the ASI Communications (ASI Comm) team and operate as the multimedia arm of ASI marketing and communication efforts. Successful volunteers and interns are exposed to all areas of television production, including pre- and post-production. Typically, students are matched up with their area of interest (i.e., hosting, camerawork, sound, writing or editing). Students are expected to be able to demonstrate the basic concepts of video production by the end of the semester as evidenced by the completion of one television programming segment, which includes pitching a segment and obtaining approval, taping and editing of a segment and/or program.
