Benjamin Delgado-Rochas, a senior at Grand Valley State, was selected as one of 15 student ambassadors for McGraw Hill Publishing following a competitive national interviewing process.

Delgado-Rochas, an international business and marketing student from Tel Aviv, Israel, first received information about the opportunity from Jayne Dissette, an adjunct instructor with Seidman Management and the School of Computing Science, who urged him to pursue the position.

“The application process was very complex,” said Delgado-Rochas. “I had to apply online, had two phone interviews, and then a week or two later I was accepted.”

Delgado-Rochas said he is taking this unpaid opportunity to expand the skills he is learning in his academic programs and applying them to a real-world situation. His responsibilities are to connect with students and to conduct research for McGraw Hill’s Connect/LearnSmart, an online student resource.

Connect/LearnSmart is designed to enhance students’ learning experience through educational outlines of textbook chapters, quizzes and study guides. The online software aims to increase student grades and encourages students to participate more in class.

“McGraw Hill has many goals they want to achieve, beginning with increasing the recognition of their smart learning system,” said Delgado-Rochas. He is conducting marketing research on campus and utilizing social media to share information with students.

“We use Facebook to post articles and related materials,” said Delgado-Rochas. “I’m also trying to talk to students and learn what they know about Connect/LearnSmart and McGraw Hill in general. It’s satisfying to me to continue working and gaining more experience in the social media marketing, and to be a part of such a major organization as McGraw Hill,” he said.

Back In Black, Sunday Oct. 14

      So here we go. It has been a tradition Kinshuk ("Good Karma with Sharma") started a few years ago, Now it's my turn to write the blog. Please be aware that English is my third language and the highest grade I got in my English and Lit classes was a B+.  But welcome to my blog about what life is like for a UNCW men's tennis player.

      There are a lot of things that happened this weekend at the Wake Forest Fall Invitational in Winston Salem.  We left Wilmington on Thursday at Noon. It was really cool to see that Coach was bringing his A game and picked us up on time by Wagoner Hall (our on campus cafeteria). We traveled in two mini-vans and I got to be with Taylor, Blitz (Zach), Sam and Coop (Chris). The ride was extremely funny - everyone was very excited about the tournament and the good mood caused a lot of good jokes in the car. The four-hour ride went by in a blink of an eye. We got to Winston-Salem around 5 p.m. and got to practice at Wake Forest's facility. There were 12 outdoor and 8 indoor courts at the facility just by the football Stadium. It's the same site as where they play the $250,000 ATP Event Winston Salem Open.

      After practice, we went to Ruby Tuesday's for dinner. Since it was Rafa's birthday he got a little cupcake and a phone number written with chocolate syrup on the plate - it made Rafa blush! The whole team was singing happy birthday to Rafa which made him blush even more. We had a meeting with coach that night; I like those meetings. They give confidence to the players going into the first day of the tournament. It's nice to know how the day is planned and how many matches we are playing the next day. We got some good sleep and got ready to battle it out since we knew every day would be a LONG day.

      The pairings for double were as follows: Blitz and Pedro, Reilly (Michael) and Kaue, Sam and Rafa. Coop, unfortunately, got to play doubles with me. All of us played two doubles matches and had a singles to follow. Blitz, Reiley and Cheers (Matt) got to play indoors, while the rest of the team got to play outdoors. I was pretty happy about playing outdoors - it was a nice and sunny 65 degree weather with no wind, and playing outside was just perfect. Our overall record for the day was 17-4, which is pretty good.

      We came back to the hotel around 8 p.m. after getting dinner at the same Ruby Tuesday's that we ate the night before. Another meeting with coaches and we are headed to our beds. We all know that tomorrow will be a bit tougher. Saturday was a hard day with a doubles match and two singles matches to follow. It was really challenging for our coaches to keep up with the matches since the facility was spread out and most of us played at the same time. A lot of times we had to play for quite some time without anyone cheering for us and it was just another challenge that we had to face. After all this is Fall and things like that would not happen in Spring.

      On a positive note, it was really nice that Coop's mom and brother came all the way from Colorado to cheer for us at the tournament. It is always exciting when family members come to cheer, especially if they live so far away. Another really cool thing that happened that day was a few facts that Blitz and Reilly figured out about our coach's past. Coach Choboy - the current head coach of the N.C. State tennis team used to coach Coach DuBois in his college days at Charleston Southern and told the guys some things that we never heard. The funniest one was our coach's nickname in college - "Chizzler." Apparently, chizzling is a slang term for slicing the ball and that is what our coach used to do all the time in his college career. So from now on we refer to Coach as "The Chizzler."

      So let me jump back to the tournament. We had a tough day, but some good results as well. Our doubles definitely got better and in singles we had plenty of success with chizzling and battling our way through. I have to mention that there were quite a few distractions Saturday. There was a high school state band competition at the football stadium and there was a lot of noise distracting the players. It was just another challenge that we had to work through and that made us a little tougher. The day is over and while everyone is having a nice weekend we are getting ready for the final day of the tournament and we are pumped up to finish it the Seahawk way and get the "W".

      The Sunday matches went well for us and we compiled a record of 8-1. The summary of the results would be: Reilly won the C flight in singles, Blitz and Pedro won the B flight in doubles (shout out to Blitz who has been working hard on his volleys for the last few weeks - and for beating Reilly and Kaue in the finals. It's always kind of weird to play your teammates in a tournament, but it does lead to some funny moments.  Both doubles teams got one of our coaches with each of them and it was pretty intense.  Reilly and Kaue tried to get into the other guy's heads when their was a break. Reilly started doing push-ups on the court and Kaue knocked out some Burpee's. The crowd laughed and thought it was pretty funny. They obviously weren't used to how hard we like to compete.

      I got lucky enough to win the B draw in singles. We definitely had some good matches and improved a lot. We got back to Wilmington around 9 p.m. Sunday night just in time to get some rest and catch up on some assignments that we missed. It'd been a great weekend and it will just get better! I look forward to my next blog about the USTA/ITA Regional Championship in Cary, NC!

      Go Seahawks!
