In about 20days Belfast will be hosting the first ever NCAA Men’s College Basketball tournament, the Basketball Hall Of Fame Belfast Classic and us Scholars are having the privilege of being apart of it. We get to help with the marketing aspect. We have hosted Halloween Basketball camps, hosted different shooting competitions in front of shopping centers, and handed out flyers. This past weekend me and one of my roommates we’re brought to a cute neighborhood where we passed out flyers to different homes. When we first arrived we didn’t know what to expect but it was a nice time taking a stroll through the neighborhood. We made a good time out of it even saw some pretty awesome views of the city because the neighborhood was so hilly.
As Victory Scholars of Ulster University we have been able to be behind the scenes of this major event that is coming to Belfast. We have been able to see what it takes to put a major event on and even give some of our ideas that could possibly help with the event. This experience so far has truly been so amazing; I am learning so much about myself, a new culture, and a little about the business world. We are gaining hands on experience that we will be able to use once we enter the working world and I am extremely grateful for that. Come December 1st and 2nd the days of the tournament, it is going to be awesome to see the whole event come together especially because us Scholars can say we contributed to its success.
“Get Ready Belfast” the tournament is right around the corner!
