Building Her Four Cornerstones of Life

Eller Marketing ’12
Stephanie Csongor is highly involved in the Eller undergraduate community, but peers don’t recognize her just because she’s president of her business fraternity and has an outgoing personality. If you think she looks familiar, it is probably because you’ve seen her on Fox College Sports, KGUN 9’s In the Huddle, and on the big screen in front 50,000 screaming UA football fans.
UA Athletics hired Csonger as its roaming personality — interviewing players and acting as in-game host for UA Football. Athletics noticed her several years ago when she began making announcements for the Student Union, and after seeing the UA Facebook video promoting the Arizona App.
“The director of marketing at Arizona Athletics, Shawn Chevreux, contacted my manager to see if I was available to serve as in-game host for football,” she explained. “I went a couple times to McKale Center to audition, and I got the job.”
But her newfound popularity with Arizona fans hasn’t deterred her studies or her passion for business. She has been active with business fraternity Delta Sigma Pi for four semesters, currently serving as president. Csonger said that the fraternity has shaped her knowledge of the business world. “Working in Delta Sig is like working in a small business,” she said. “You pick up professional experience and further yourself as an individual, while learning about and leveraging your strengths and incorporating others so that you have the best cohesive unit for your organization.”
After graduation, Csonger plans to follow in the steps of her father, who works in marketing. “Hearing stories from his work inspired me to pursue a marketing degree,” she said. “I feel like marketing gives me the opportunity to work creatively with people and use my strengths in communication and critical thinking.”
She aims to work for a large company that aligns with her beliefs, which she said are inspired by her grandmother’s “four cornerstones of life” — a balance of culture, sport, education, and spirituality.
“I want a position that allows me to travel and work on outward-facing tasks with many different kinds of clients and partners,” she said. “I want to deal with cutting-edge issues and opportunities, and love the people I work with.”
