Matthew's Story

Matthew Makela, B.A. Economics (2015)
Student Supervisor – SRC Facilities (2012-15)

Professional Staff of Recreation and Wellness (and GA's who have impacted me),

You have all impacted my experience at BGSU in many more ways than you know. Over the past decade I have held several jobs. I don’t think I can categorize the SRC as a job because it was so much more than that. I would call it an educational experience, but even that is underselling it. Over my past three years I have grown and matured. I have learned how to manage chaotic situations, make quick and decisive decisions, and manage a staff of employees. I could go on and on about how much my skillset and business aptitude has developed over the past few years at the SRC, but ultimately I just want to say “thank you” to all of you for what you do to enable students like myself to have this opportunity. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with all of you, and I sincerely thank you for everything.
