The McGraw-Page Library cannot run without the help of our many student workers. Unfortunately for us, each year we lose many to graduation. We would like to shine a spotlight on them and their wonderful help.
Major: Engineering Physics
After R-MC Plans: Working full-time over the summer as a lab technician, with hopes for a position at TemperPack (a local biodegradable packaging company. I plan to continue my education by earning a Master's in Material Science Engineering through UVa.
Favorite Library Memory: I don't have a specific favorite memory, but as a student worker, I loved being involved in making the library run, helping students, and occasionally giving my perspective as a student to help solve problems in the library. And as a regular student, I loved how the library and Duncan offered snacks, donuts, and coffee during finals each semester to keep us going. Things like that serve as a testament to how the library is consistently thinking of the students, and that kind of thoughtfulness and consideration is my favorite thing about the library.
Major: Political Science and Spanish
After R-MC Plans: Special Events Fundraiser for the Leukemia-Lymphomia Society of Richmond
Favorite Library Memory: Being able to get to know the staff throughout my four years as a student worker - being able to drop into Gardner's office at any point and leave feeling more confident in my research and studies!
Major: English & Writing, Journalism & Ethics minors.
After R-MC: Live in Northern Virginia and working as a technical/proposal writer doing government contracting.
Favorite Library Memory: Trying to shoot footage of piloting the drone. I don't know if you've used it much, but boy, is that thing finicky. I was definitely nervous trying to pilot the thing while also juggling filming it. I had trouble getting to turn it off, and the propeller blades even cut my arm a little bit! But I was able to get the footage we needed, though I don't think I'll be buying a drone any time soon.
