Hi everyone, my name is Marissa Boyles '22 and I am a sophomore from Brick, New Jersey. I am majoring in Accounting with a minor in Criminalistics. This is my first year on Road Crew and it has been amazing so far!
Road Crew got the chance to meet with Jimmy DiGuglielmo '17 who works as a Banquet Event Manager for Aramark at Adventure Aquarium in Camden, New Jersey where he plans some amazing events at the aquarium!
Jimmy graduated in 2017 with a degree in Hospitality Management. While at York College, Jimmy was the senior class president, involved in the hospitality society, a brother of Kappa Delta Rho Fraternity, a student ambassador, and a member of the ski and outdoors club.
Jimmy gave us a tour of the aquarium, including above the tanks where divers get in the water. It was a really cool experience seeing what goes on behind the scenes in an aquarium as most people are not able to see that. It was interesting seeing how Jimmy’s role worked into the aquarium itself. He plans events in a ballroom that has a massive shark tank on one side. I would never expect a prom or wedding to be held in a place like this, so it was a very unique venue that gave us a different view of what hospitality majors are able to do. Our visit to Adventure Aquarium was fun, energetic, and unlike anything else. I am grateful that Jimmy was willing to give us a tour and let us enjoy the aquarium while still managing to engage with us and explain what York College means to him.
