Security is a major part of arena management. At each UCSB basketball game, more than 30 students work under a set of supervisors to make sure that fans are safe and that arena rules are followed. Once the game starts, the busy work of the arena staff continues, as they make sure fans have what they need and that game officials and players are kept safe to do their work.

Managing people is as much a part of Dixon’s job as making sure the arena floor is ready for play.
