Intern Profile: Dannah Williams

Hey everyone, my name is Dannah!

How long have you been working at Convocations?

I joined the Convos team this August and have felt welcomed since I walked through the door; everyone has been so friendly and warm.

What has been your favorite Convos show?

My favorite Convos show has been ‘Rent’ when it came to Purdue two springs ago. I’ve been a theater fan since I was a kiddo.

What do you do when you’re not working at Convos?

Last May, I graduated from Purdue in three years to start the MS Marketing program in Krannert and continue playing of the women’s soccer team my fourth year. I also act as the president for Boiler SAAC and am constantly listening Apple Music.

Do you have any advice for future Convos interns?
I would tell future interns to get as much learning out of their time here as possible. This department has an incredible staff that is so friendly and always willing to help answer any questions you may have. They want you here because they want your help, but they also want to help you develop in whatever way you need. So don’t be scared to ask questions! And if you ever feel like there’s something more you want to do, then ask around and try it out.

What are your future plans?
I will be graduating with my master’s in marketing in May 2019. Hopefully I will start working for an event management company shortly after.

What has been your favorite project as a Convos intern?
My favorite project as an intern has been the social media campaign data analysis. While working on that project I have also been taking a master’s course that directly applies to what I do for Convos. I get to apply what I’ve learned in class to work and visa versa, which makes the learning experience all the more interesting.

If you could bring any show/artist to Purdue, who would you bring?
I actually requested to bring Young the Giant to Purdue, and they are coming this spring! I’d really like to see some more genres represented at the university, so I would like to see NAO or H. E. R at Purdue.

What, in your opinion, is the most important impact Convos has on campus?
The most important impact Convos has on campus is its ability to expose young adults to art and ways of expression they may not have known before. Convos is attractive and easily accessible to us on campus, so we can dabble in this new world while it’s still convenient for us.

So what are you listening to right now?

Right now I’ve been listening to the pre-releases of Young the Giant’s and NAO’s new albums.
