BInvolved: Student Clubs and Organizations
BRecognized: Featured Student Leader and Organization for June
Leadership: Gallardo was the first ever President of the very first Greek Life organization on campus- Theta Phi Alpha. In Spring 2020, she stepped down for the Public Relations Chairman position. She is the Vice President of Communications for the American Marketing Association Club. She is also an ambassador for the College of Business. She was an Executive Board Member for the 2019 Orientation Leader Program. She works for both the Marketing and Communications Department and the Undergraduate Business Department.
She is highly ambitious: Gallardo is a double major. She is pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing with a concentration in Digital Marketing and Integrated Marketing Communications… and a Bachelor of Arts in International Business and Economics. “My ultimate career goal is to work for an international company trying to penetrate the Hispanic market, or targeting a Hispanic consumer segment, or to work for a Latin company trying to enter the global market.”
Favorite memories: From AMA, one of her favorite memories was when they created a Social Media plan for Feed My Starving Children in Aurora. She says they came up with strategies and other tips to improve their social media impact and effectiveness. “We were able to present our ideas to the people in charge of their Digital Marketing, and they actually have implemented our suggestions!”
Her favorite memory from Theta Phi Alpha was from their very first New Member Ceremony. “I loved feeling the support from members across the Midwest that made their way to Benedictine for a 1.5 hour event. And, of course, getting initiated and established as the Delta Nu Chapter!”
Impressively long days on campus: Gallardo, as a commuter, says her longest day at BenU was 12 hours, with her shortest day being at least 6 hours. However, when she was President of Theta Phi Alpha, she used to spend 10-14 hours on campus per day.
