Meet the Interns: Abby, Kristen, Logan & Ryan!


Abby Zweigle | La Salle University ’16

Abby is working as the Communications intern at Campus Philly. Fresh off the Semester at Sea ship, traveling the world, she’s back on land and has just started her last semester at La Salle University. She will graduate in May with a degree in Marketing and minor in Communications.

In her college career, she’s been very proactive with gaining professional experiences early on, landing 5 internships working with companies in multiple fields such as event planning, public relations, online marketing and even a local startup.

“I take advantage of Philadelphia and all it is able to offer to me professionally.”

She’s thrilled to be working with a company that has direct access to the city and it’s events, and most importantly, the students. Being a student, Abby is excited to offer her outlook and ideas to the Campus Philly team and to make opportunities more exciting and purposeful for you! She hopes to learn how to better serve our city through social and professional events, opportunities offered for internships and jobs, being an outlet for colleges and universities, and of course, learning ins and outs of Philadelphia along the way.

Abby’s perfect Philly day: “Breakfast at King Oaks, head on Kelly Drive for a afternoon walk, visit Reading Terminal Market, and finish my day off at Morgan’s Pier for some nice weather and views!”

Kristen Willie | Temple University ’18

Kristen is a sophomore Advertising major with a concentration in Research and Strategy from Temple University. She have two minors in dance and general business studies, not to mention she’s in the process of applying to study abroad in Rome in Fall 2016!

Kristen is a Philadelphia native who says, “there is no place I love more than the City of Brotherly Love!”

At Campus Philly, Kristen will be working as the Open Arts Events and Marketing Intern. She will have a chance to work on many different marketing projects and have opportunities to attend events for Campus Philly. She’s already been able to apply some of her research background to help Campus Philly better connect and reach our Open Arts members!

During her time here, she hopes to learn how to plan and organize events, as well as, learn how to effectively market to students through Campus Philly.

Kristen’s perfect Philly day:  “When I am not studying, my perfect day in the city would include eating Franklin Fountain ice cream in Olde City, shopping in Eye’s Gallery on South Street, and taking photos to upload to Instagram.”

Logan Beck | Temple University ’17

Logan is acting as the Online Promotions Intern for Campus Philly’s Open Arts program. She’s a junior Journalism major at Temple University (go Owls!), and she couldn’t be more excited to help connect my classmates and fellow college students to all of the sights and sounds Philly has to offer!

In true millennial fashion, Logan loves social media, and she can’t wait to have a hands on experience with our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts.

Logan’s perfect Philly day: “My perfect day in the city would involve sunshine, and reading a classic novel in Rittenhouse with macarons from Miel Pattiserie in hand.”

Ryan Murray | Temple University ’15

Ryan is a creative mind that likes to be unorthodox in his design methods.  As a recent Temple University graduate with an Advertising degree, he hopes to become an Art Director. In Ryan’s spare time, you can find him playing guitar, watching Philadelphia sports, playing Xbox with friends, or hanging out with his Corgi.

“Philly is my city and I hope to stay here for a long time. That’s why I’m glad to be working at Campus Philly where I can help others see all that Philadelphia has to offer.”

Ryan’s perfect Philly day: “A warm, early-summer day that starts off with a bike ride to Spruce Street Harbor to get lunch and hang out in the hammocks with a view of the waterfront. When dinner comes around, my friends and I would head over to the Brazilian Steakhouse, Fogo de Chao and get our fill of all they have to offer. Finally, to wind down and relax we would all head over to Frankford Hall for drink specials before heading back to my apartment at Temple University to end the day hanging out together.
