Today the Desk Staff spotlight is on Emily Blaha, a business administration major with an emphasis in marketing and a minor in design arts. Her nicknames include Em, and Emma Dilemma but most people call her Emily. In her free time, Emily likes to travel, spend time with friends and family, sing, go for walks on the trails, and bike.

This is Emily’s second semester on Desk Staff and her favorite part of the job is getting to know new students that come in for help and seeing returning students she already knows. Emily said that this position has taught her to be more understanding, how to handle pressure and good customer service. One of Emily’s accomplishments is making the Dean’s list while also working three jobs.

Emily also shared her favorite memory from her time on staff. “My favorite memory is when I worked a closing shift late last semester.” Emily said. “We were in the middle of recontracting for housing. I got to take the huge maps of all of the buildings and lay them out on the floor behind the desk and cross off rooms that were already taken. So I pretty much got to color for two hours on the floor like a little kid. It was great.”

Thank you Emily and have a great year!
