Q & A

Inspired by last month’s Homecoming Weekend, we asked employees this question: What’s the best, or weirdest, thing about the transition from being a PUC student to being a PUC employee?

One of the weirdest things about transitioning to an employee is sometimes calling a professor by their first name, by their request.Danny Phillips

The weirdest thing I’ve experienced has to be calling professors by their first names, with the additional challenge of avoiding the nicknames we used for them during our student days.  (For those of you who had me in classes, I assure you that the nicknames were always incredibly positive and always flattering.)Cammie Wheeler

My favorite memory of transitioning from a student to staff was that for about two years people referred to me as a student in meetings.  Oh, and they always wanted to swipe my card at colloquy.Nic Hubbard
