CG Team Member's Marathon For a Cause

CG Team Member's Marathon For a Cause

Putting meaning into miles

After training for many months and completing 5Ks, 10Ks and half marathon races in all 5 boroughs (plus Les 20 Kilometres de Paris), CampusGroups team member since 2011, Laura Lafond, will be running the iconic NYC Marathon on November 4, 2018. This race, however, will be different from the others (and not just because it’s longer).

Not only will Laura be running her first marathon, but she has dedicated her hard work and efforts to helping raise funds for the New York Road Runners (NYRR) Team for Kids.

Behind the Scenes: My First Week at CampusGroups

My arrival

Greetings! I just arrived to CampusGroups last week and am thrilled to be working with such a welcoming group of people. I have spent the last week exploring the sophisticated system and the extensive tools and functionality that CampusGroups has to offer. Everyone on the team has been more than happy to answer questions, demonstrate a feature or share fresh, warm croissants from the nearby farmers’ market in Union Square. I’ll be posting regularly on the CG blog to provide news on features and share stories and pictures from behind the scenes. It’s my goal to help you discover what we do, and all that you can do with the CampusGroups platform.

What I will be doing

Firsthand, I’m learning how great it is to be a part of an international team. We have one office in New York, one in Paris, a new San Francisco location and a team in India as well. We work closely alongside each other with our developers, designers, campus relations and support teams communicating constantly with numerous Skype meetings across continents throughout the day. It’s a good thing, too, to already know everyone in the other locations:  I’m only in NY for a few more weeks. I’ll be moving to the Paris office soon for four months. I hope you will enjoy the journey with me!
