Happy Monday! We know what will cheer you up from your Monday Blues… more Section Leader Spotlights! And today, we will introduce the rest of our amazing SocialUMediaB team for the 2018 season!
First, we have Sophie Estep! Sophie is from Round Top, NY and a member of the clarinet section. This summer, she spent time with family and friends while working as a waitress/bartender at a local mountain resort! Sophie had so much fun performing with a traditional German dancing group and getting to listen to many different styles of German music. If Sophie could give advice to incoming freshman, she would say to introduce yourself to people in your section, your dorm and even your major. Some new best friends are right around the corner! Also, take advantage of being in one of the BIGGEST, most prideful organizations on campus. You get to celebrate Syracuse and music with your best friends.
Finally, we have Caitlin Mogan! Caitlin is an alto sax from Wakefield, MA. Caitlin was a world traveler this summer, starting off in South Africa with SU Abroad. She worked with a local nonprofit for three weeks to implement a drug awareness program for teens in the area. Then, Caitlin was off to Texas for a leadership convention for Alpha Gamma Delta sorority! Most recently, she was on a trip with her extended family. They drove 35+ hours in a week and a half to see Yellowstone, Grand Teton and parts of Montana, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado. Caitlin’s advice to freshman: Don’t overthink it! Band camp is hard work, but also a lot of fun. Getting stressed about being perfect won’t get you anywhere, but having a positive attitude and giving it your all will pay off!
