The end of a semester means graduation for many Dragons, including two of our long-times student staff members – Eddie and Trista.

Eddie joined us in August 2011 as an Administrative Assistant in the Admin Office. Over the years, he has helped out in the ROC during summer time and breaks regularly before becoming an Info Desk Attendant. An international student from Ghana, Eddie found a home in the student union. We are excited for Eddie to head out into the working world and show them what Dragons can do!


Trista also joined us in August 2011 as an Administration Assistant. In her time here, she became a go-to person for many types of questions. Eventually she moved into a Scheduling and Accounting Assistant role where she became a crucial part of our Admin Office. We are beyond thrilled that Trista has decided to pursue a Master’s degree so we can keep her around as the Event Services Graduate Assistant. If her past performance is any indicator, she will quickly wow us in her new role.



As much as we enjoy the time we have with our student employees and are sad to see them go, we are also happy to see them do what students are supposed to do: graduate and use their talents, skills and abilities to change the world. As President Anne would say, “We’re transforming the world by transforming lives.”
