Ryan is an excellent teammate in the Office of Admissions. Recently, Ryan stepped up on short notice to lead a session during a staff training session and did an excellent job leading an inclusive, thoughtful discussion. He also recently organized fun team building exercises that enhanced staff chemistry and connection. No matter what is needed, Ryan always steps up to help his teammates. He has been an especially good example for new staff members when it comes to professionalism and how to be a good teammate. Ryan‘s kindness, his passion for EIU, his work ethic, and his curriculum / transfer knowledge all combine to make him a valued resource for his students and a beloved member of the Admissions team.

A big thank you for deep cleaning and sanitizing Coleman Hall and keeping the building clean on a daily basis. You have outdone yourself. You went through every classroom completely sanitizing each and you continuously sanitize every room, office, hallway, doorknob, etc. You even deep cleaned carpets that have looked disgusting for years and you deep cleaned classroom chairs that seemed to be beyond help. You carefully cleaned each fabric chair in one of the computer labs. Now, those chairs look almost as good as they did the day they arrived several years ago. You are doing an awesome job and Coleman Hall occupants truly appreciate you. Thank you for all of your efforts and, especially, for your hard work and commitment to EIU.

Sandy has one of the greatest "can do/will do" attitudes I have ever seen.  Her graphic designer skills are outstanding, and she has shown miraculous "turn around" time for getting projects completed when urgently needed.  Sandy routinely goes "above and beyond the call of duty."  Thank you, Sandy!  You are a true asset to EIU, particularly your home department--intercollegiate athletics.

Keep up the incredible work Dr. Grant!

As we kick off another busy semester, I wanted to take a minute to extend my gratitude to Dr. John Cabage in the School of Technology.  John works tirelessly to make sure his students get what they need from day one in our Construction Management Program/Major and, overall, any coursework he is responsible for teaching. John is a true ambassador (in every sense of the word) for this program, the School of Technology, and Eastern Illinois University. Kudos for your hard work, dedication, and perseverance Dr. Cabage!

Big Shoutout to Nate Atkinson for his continual development and support of MyEIU. Nate implements technology that saves money and improves process efficiency. Last month the student callers  and admissions counselors made 2572 phone calls via twilio, those calls cost the University 60 dollars, instead of near $1000 if the calls would have been made via traditional means. Keep up the good work Nate!
