SOA Spotlight – Alyssa Yang

IMG_5859Our next Summer Operations Assistant Spotlight is on first year employee Alyssa Yang! Alyssa is going to be a sophomore here at UW-Green Bay studying Psychology. She made the decision to work at Residence Life this summer because she wanted an opportunity to meet new people and interact with more students and this position was perfect for that!

Alyssa loves her job as a SOA and said that her favorite part about working in ResLife is talking to the snowbirds! Not sure what a snowbird is? It is an awesome program that you can learn more about here!

Thank you for an amazing summer Alyssa! We couldn’t have had such a successful summer without your hard work!

SOA Spotlight – Liz Brinks

Even during the summer months, our student employees are hard at work! One of those positions in which we employ students over the summer is our Summer Operations Assistants. Responsibilities of our awesome SOAs include serving as a Resident Assistant for an assigned building, providing guest services, and serving in an on-call and on-duty capacity. They are so amazing at their job that we want to highlight them before Lizthe summer ends! Our first SOA Spotlight is on first year Residence Life employee, Liz Brinks!

Liz is going to be a sophomore this coming year doubling majoring in Education and Spanish with a minor in Bilingual Education. She chose to work with Res Life because she was in search of an on-campus job that built off her experience working at Shopko and the Phoenix Bookstore and she is so glad she made this decision! Liz loves working with her awesome team of SOAs and definitely plans to come back next summer!

Thank you Liz for all of your hard work this summer and we would love to have you back next summer!
