Hey Gophs! I'm the Programs Coordinator for the Program Board and I will be graduating this spring with a degree in Public Relations and Leadership. I oversee Spring Jam as a whole and work closely with our event sponsors. My all-time favorite concert aside from the Passion Pit and Hoodie Allen concert is last year's MTV Woodie Awards in Austin, Texas featuring Alt-J, Atlas Genius, Macklemore and Zedd. But who knows, maybe this year's Spring Jam concerts will rival my past experiences...and yours!

Hey all! My name is Rachel Hauser, and I’m an English major and New Media minor. My role as Outreach and New Media Coordinator involves everything from planning the Friday noontime show, to event photography, to volunteer recruitment and leadership. I’m stoked to help present the 2014 Spring Jam lineup—it’s going to be one for the books. My favorite music experience was attending SXSW last spring.
