SHOUT OUTS!

Welcome to the Eastern Illinois University Shout Out Page. Staff Senate initiated this page to support and boost the morale of all EIU employees and promote a positive campus spirit. “Shout Outs” are a public recognition of thanks or appreciation. We want to give recognition to the great works done by many individuals, departments, and others, on a day-to-day basis.

We encourage you to use the Shout Out submission form to acknowledge and recognize a fellow employee. To create a Shout Out, please click on the ‘Make a Shout Out’ tab and log in using your Net Id and Password. Once the Shout Out form is submitted, a moderator will review and then proudly display your submission on the Shout Out page. Random submissions will also be posted on social media such as Facebook and Twitter.

This page was created in memory of UPD officer Harold Harris.

Merry is quite like her name--merry. She is upbeat and positive and very helpful. Any time you have an issue, she is happy to give you an explanation. She takes the time to meet your needs without making you feel as if you are imposing even though she is also very busy with her workload. Thanks, Merry.

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!
