Brittni Lowery7forWPThe year before college, Brittni Lowery’s biggest challenge was convincing her mother to let her move into the Bulls Business Community on-campus instead of living at home. Now, she credits the Bulls Business Community with being the first step that helped her take advantage of the opportunities USF offers, including internships, leadership positions, and future study abroad options.

Through the Bulls Business Community, Lowery served as a mentor to freshmen during her sophomore year, raised just under $1,000 for the American Cancer Society as  the Relay for Life team co-captain, and became one of the community’s three resident assistants.

Outside of the living-and-learning experience, she holds an additional leadership role as vice president of the Women in Business Society, choosing the executive board, leading meetings, and networking with women in Tampa Bay. She also worked as an orientation team leader in the summer of 2012, working with first year students and their families to introduce them to USF.

Lowery currently works as a marketing intern for the Museum of Science and Industry, where she plans events and has worked on presentations for senior museum leadership. In the future she plans on attending graduate school for student affairs.
