June/July 2018: Austin Chapman

"I would like to nominate Austin Chapman as the MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month for June/July 2018. Austin studies at the University of Indiana, but is a South Bend native. Although Austin was only able to work with our department for 3 months, he made a large impact on our staff this summer! I can honestly say Austin has been one of the most dependable, hardworking, and quick learning student employees I have had the opportunity to supervise. Austin has been one of the those employees that can just "run with things." Although he was originally unfamiliar with most of the programs he worked with this summer (design programs, our web platform, etc.), Austin was proficient in these programs by the end of the summer and it seemed as if he never missed a beat when learning how to utilize them!

A tribute to his dedication, Austin will continue to work with us on breaks while home. Austin's talent and dedication to our team will truly be missed throughout the academic year, but I'm certain he will continue to impress at IU, or wherever he may work! For these reasons, I would like to nominate Austin Chapman for the RecSports June/July 2018 MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month."
