Hi Micah, Great question about a field I consider an excellent career choice, event planner! Like you probably are, I am always fascinated about "what goes on behind the scenes" at events that I attend. If your school has open houses for incoming students - an event I volunteered at while working at a University, contact the organizers to see about getting involved, the logistics and collaboration required to put on a successfull open house are amazing. Also, if your school presents plays, concerts, readings, etc., again contact the organizers to get involved. If there are local parades, art events, street fairs, etc., these could be other varied events to get involved with. Hope this helps and very best of luck to you!
