In honor of employee appreciation week, employees were asked to “Share their Stories” as a UWGB employee. When asked to name a favorite part, experience, or aspect of their position the following employees wrote:
“I love being employed at UWGB. My favorite part is walking up to the Cofrin Library on a sunny summer day. I also love chatting with donors/students/graduating seniors about what they love about UWGB.” Liz Teubert, University Advancement.
“Being able to do repair work and improvements for a large group of departments and individuals all around campus.” Wayne Chaloupka, Facilities Management.
“My favorite part of my position is the people I get to work with in the Adult Degree Program. All of the staff in the Adult Degree Program work incredibly hard and are excellent at helping each other out at a moment’s notice. I don’t think I would enjoy my job nearly as much if it weren’t for my colleagues. They get me laughing all the time and keep a smile on my face.” Jennifer Koroll, Outreach and Adult Access.
“I loved setting up for Bay Fest back when we had it on campus. It was fun! My favorite part of my position is the people, and I like to clean so it looks nice for them to enjoy.” Colleen Wilde, University Union.
“One of my favorite parts of my role has to be the student interaction and the committees I serve for. I love having the opportunity to lead sessions on student employment or PRO training to current or prospective students or to get out from behind my desk and mingle with other staff and faculty. I love that my role allows for so much collaboration on a daily basis!” Diana Delbecchi, Financial Aid.
“Seeing the “A Ha Moments” when working with students who come for academic support when they know that they finally GET IT as well as getting to work with and getting to know my multitude of eclectic tutors each semester.” Sherri Arendt, Tutoring Services.
“I love, love, love that my job allows me to work with people across campus and that I get to make connections with so many wonderful people in so many departments.”Jena Richter, Marketing and Communication.
