I am a sophomore building manager in my second year working for the Student Recreation Center. I am currently a Physical Education major, with a concentration in coaching, along with a business minor. The rec is basically my second home. When I am not working as a building manager, in intramurals, or in equipment checkout, you can probably find me playing basketball in the gym, playing Ultimate Frisbee somewhere, or riding my unicycle. I am extremely passionate about the New Jersey Devils hockey team, as I watch every single game. If you have any sort of a sense of humor, I’m pretty sure we can get along!Garret Hoffman
