Mischief, Mayhem and Madness

For Blue Crew President Justin Milner, it’s a full-time job of “Mischief, Mayhem and Madness.” The enthusiastic student organization is one of the fastest-growing campus groups with members who attend and promote all Islander Athletic games – from basketball and baseball to volleyball and golf. Their primary focus is to show off their endless Islander team spirit, tradition and student involvement; and sponsor pre-game tailgating. As a result of Blue Crew, the attendance at games has increased immensely. Under the direction of Athletic Marketing Coordinator Samantha Thomas, Blue Crew was made official in fall 2009. Milner, a native of Bedford, Texas, who is majoring in kinesiology with a minor in social studies, wants to become a teacher and coach. So far, he’s already highly motivated for the position. It’s not uncommon for Milner to cover himself with blue and green paint and heckle the visiting team. And he can’t wait to see Blue Crew (bluecrew.tamucc.edu) grow even more. While keeping his grades in check, he also serves on the executive board for Beta Theta Pi and as vice president of recruitment for the Interfraternity Council and works as a student brand manager for Red Bull. Milner is excited about studying at the new Island Hall, which will be the University’s largest building and home to the University’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences and the College of Education’s kinesiology program when it opens this summer. As an added bonus, Milner loves the sunny weather and relaxing beach atmosphere of campus, which feels like his second home.
