Hello Life University Staff:
I hope you are having a great spring quarter! Now that the weather is
warmer, we can truly enjoy being outside and spending time on our
beautiful campus. Before you know it, public schools will be out for the summer. That means
less traffic! I know I’m looking forward to a better commute to work, especially with all the crazy
road issues and closures in the city lately.
I wanted to share with you all the reasons why I love being the Staff Newsletter Editor. I really
enjoy coordinating, editing and formatting all the articles. By now, it has become second nature
to me. As we continue with this eighth year of the Staff Newsletter, I wanted to share that I feel
truly honored to be your editor and have really enjoyed getting to know fellow staff from this
experience. Whether it is from the staff we feature, my newsletter team or from our readers,
it has been my pleasure to get to know you. It is so nice to know, based on the feedback we
receive, that you really enjoy reading the newsletter each quarter. Keep that feedback coming!
Another reason I edit the newsletter is to keep up my writing skills. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in
Communication and formerly worked in the magazine industry. The newsletter is just one of the
ways I make sure that my writing and editing skills stay intact.
For any new LIFE employees who are just reading the Staff Newsletter for the first time, I hope
you enjoy it. You can always access past newsletters on the LIFE website and on the Staff
Council 101 Blackboard site.
We have a great issue for you this quarter, which is also concise. Get to know Groundsman
Hunter Hughes in this quarter’s Staff Spotlight. Shelia Wood wrote a wonderful article called,
Finding a Miracle Through Loss, so be sure to read about her experiences. Learn more about
the Human Resources department in this quarter’s Around Campus feature. Enjoy making our
spring-themed recipes, Biscuits and Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade. Also, make sure to read
about how furry friends can improve our health in this quarter’s LIFE-Steps to Wellness article.
I hope you have a great rest of the quarter!
