Introduction to Laura Smith

Jun 17, 2016 by Marketing on The Nickelodeon Blog

One balmy August, Laura Smith—famous adventurer and explorer of unknown and well-known places—landed in Columbia, South Carolina. Immediately trapped by the oppressive humidity and a horde of militant mosquitos, she trekked to the University of South Carolina armed with only bug spray and a desire to learn. Laura’s time at USC used up all her bug spray, but gave her a growing interest in the cultural and recreational life of Columbia. She teaches music lessons, blogs about the city, and gives unsolicited advice on the best places to eat, drink, and explore around town.

At the Nickelodeon Theatre, Laura is interning with the marketing department, focusing on social media and writing. She hopes to develop the middle ground between her academic past—studying literature at the university—and the reality of cultural life in a growing metropolis. She looks forward to promoting the Nick Theatre as a source of cultural growth in Columbia and giving solicited advice on movies and events.

Otherwise, she enjoys reading, watching Star Trek, walking her two dogs at Riverfront Park, and sifting through the records at Papa Jazz.
