I promote the activities, events, and awards of the Berglund Center to the Pacific University community through print, graphical, and electronic means. I also create advertisements for our regularly scheduled events, like Roundtables, and regularly post updates about our achievements and upcoming events on the Pacific website and social media sites.
I'm super lucky to be working at the Berglund Center for Internet Studies because there are so many things to do here that help me personally, academically, and professionally. I like that one of the Center's focuses is the improvement of their student employees. On top of that, the atmosphere in the office is very welcoming and clean, which makes me enjoy working here.

Biology Major with Japanese Minor
I create and maintain web pages by using HTML, CSS, and PHP. Working at BCIS has been a very rewarding experience. I enjoy learning more about the internet and bing able applying this knowledge as I code for pages. I was able to go from having some knowledge in web design to successfully creating a new layout from scratch.
We have a very close-knit staff and an amazing boss who really encourages individual creativity. I am always amazed by what we are able to accomplish together.

As editor, Jeff reads and makes necessary changes to articles to increase clarity of thought before clearing them for publishing in our online education journal Interface.

Those that enjoy working with the English language and are secretly techies at heart would fit this niche. The articles that are submitted to us deal with Internet technology and how it has evolved over the years to fit our needs. We use programs such as Microsoft Word, Adobe InDesign, and Adobe Photoshop frequently in the process of editing and preparing articles for publication. Down in the Berglund Center, your job is not limited by your knowledge. There is always something new to learn, whether it be CSS, Photoshopping, or new grammar rules/quirks.
Exercise Science Major with an emphasis in Motor Behavior
G2CS Administrative Assistant
I am the Administrative Assistant for the Girls Gather for Computer Science (G2CS) Summer Camp. My job is very diverse in what I do from day to day because I help the camp function smoothly in many different ways. I maintain our promotional flyers and website, keeping them up-to-date and accurate each year. I contact teachers, school district administrators, and students, and inform them about what the camp is and when to apply! I interact with the campers and their families to make sure the camp is a great experience for them and work on adapting it to better fit everyone's needs. It is a really fun position, but hard to describe in one paragraph because I help out in so many different aspects of the camp!
Overall, working at BCIS has been a great opportunity for me. I learn so many things that are not covered in my classes and will be very beneficial skills to have in the workforce!

Whenever technology in the lab breaks, my job is to make it less broken. I also give out advice for a reasonable fee, and I research things that I find interesting or that might be of use for G2CS or right here at BCIS. As a side note:
I think the internet and robots are neat, but robot internet makes me think of skynet, and that is not so neat.

Assistant Copy Editor
I do copy editing here at the Berglund Center, working mostly on Interface, our online journal. Though I first came here thinking to spend my days eradicating typos, excessive commas, and grammatical issues, I soon found that working at BCIS offers much more than that.
Here at Berglund we gain so much real-world experience with the cutting edge of technology, and we do it in a fun, supportive environment. I particularly enjoy reading Interface articles, where I’ve discovered things about the internet I would never have imagined.
