Robsham Theater Arts Center
Working at Robsham was a major part of my BC experience and my role at Robsham grew as I did. I started as an usher and was later promoted to a house manager. Along the way, I developed confidence as well as communication and interpersonal skills while gaining invaluable leadership experience. I also gained great mentors in the RTAC staff. The warm, friendly, and fun environment fostered by RTAC allowed Robsham to become a home for me at BC. Albeit a much different environment, many of the skills I learned at Robsham have carried into my post-grad job working in an Emergency Room.

Working at the Robsham Box Office has given me experience with customer service, marketing, technical computer systems and invaluable relationships. With the great mentorship of the Box Office staff, I feel as though I am developing as not only an employee, but as a person. The Box Office has become a family for me on campus, which I am incredibly grateful for.

Since my first day, I have gained many tangible skills, including customer service, learning a new and complex computer system, marketing skills and the importance of teamwork. I can honestly say that my work in the Box Office has been a pivotal part of my Boston College experience and I do not know where I would be without the experiences and the relationships that I have made working here."

"I’ve been working front of house at Robsham Theater for all four of my years at BC. Coming from a rural town in Vermont, my initial excitement stemmed from the opportunity to regularly attend the big productions hosted at Robsham. Beyond viewing some of the big name acts and productions that come through the theater, I’ve also enjoyed my position as it's allowed me to work with a diverse population, honed my problem solving abilities, and given me an opportunity to enjoy working in the entertainment industry without any previous experience. As a Senior planning my next career steps, I’ve found the leadership skills I've developed as a House Manager to be a great asset."
