Congratulations Lucas Nero!!

"The transition between being a student and a university employee was easier because when you are studying and working part-time you have a lot of things to do. Like going back and forth between the office and the classroom or when I'm at my apartment and still had to do my papers. Now that I am just working, it's a bit easier - not that it's an easy job. I believe that being here for three years helped with the adaptation, since I already knew the environment and pretty much everyone at the university." - Lucas Hidalgo, recently graduated with a Business degree. Now working full-time with the Admissions office. Photo by SHU Marketing Intern, Arthur Gwoszdz
