The Kaplan Center is a multi-faceted facility that, in addition to our weekly programming, can support special events for the UNCG Community. Coordinating all of these moving pieces is now the responsibility of our new Special Events Coordinator, Hannah Lanzillotta.

Hannah joins Recreation & Wellness after completing her Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science from Elon University. A native of Cincinnati, OH, Hannah started with RecWell on June 29th and hit the ground running. “In my role as the Special Events Coordinator, I am responsible for managing reservations for all university groups and external partners.” This is not Hannah’s first experience working in facilities. “At Elon, I worked with all of the groups on and off of campus to do basically the same thing I’m doing now. It was just on a smaller scale than UNCG.”

For Hannah, it is not all work and no play. “I really like baking. I actually helped my mom start a food truck bakery, so I do a lot of that in my spare time.” In addition to her adventures in baking, Hannah enjoys hanging out with friends and going to movies. “My ideal vacation would be to visit Italy. My grandpa is from Italy and I would want to go see where he grew up.
