Olivia Goudy to Registrar’s Office:

Thank you Registrar’s Office,

For my past three years here at Seton Hill, I’ve worked with some of the most wonderful, caring people on campus. It might be biased because I call Sharon Mills my boss, but she never hesitates to ask how I’m doing, help me with my problems or listen when I need an ear. She goes above and beyond her call of duty. In fact, they all do. Even when I’m stressfully scheduling for the next semester, I know that they’ll be there to help. I don’t think a lot of people realize just how much they do. Another lovely lady who deserves a thank you is Sheri Ventrone. Day after day she answers and redirects phone calls, makes room reservations, gives directions, and happily greets the Seton Hill community. I don’t think I’ve ever walked by the reception desk and not seen Sheri with a smile. Her effervescent personality is infectious, much like that of her mother’s. We’ll all miss Betty Cianciotto and her bubbly character. But we all wish her the best in her retirement and send many thank you’s her way. So I conclude with saying an immense thank you to the incredible, hard-working folks in the Registrar’s Office.

Katelyn Snyder to SHU Food Service Staff:

Thank you Food Service Staff,

I’ve worked foodservice before and I know it can be a thankless job. It’s also one of the most important jobs I can think of. People, especially college students, love food. So thank you SHU food service staff, because not only do you provide us a lot of food on a daily basis, but you also do it with a kindness that never stops. From the people who scan our cards, to those handling dishes and the garbage cans, I’ve never found a worker who was less than polite to me. That’s pretty cool. Also, you guys do special meals like no other. Last week we had Fat Tuesday AND Valentine’s Day feasts and it was wonderful and such a nice treat. This isn’t the only reason that I think SHU food service is magical. Somehow, the dining hall is always serving my favorite meal (Grilled Cheese and Tomato soup) on my worst days. I don’t know how you guys do it, but I’m pretty thankful. That meal makes my day, every time.

Thanks again so much for all you do!

Abbey Fleckenstein to Farrell Res Life:

Thank you Farrell Hall Residence Life:

I could only imagine both the highs and lows of being a Residence Life staff member. I truly appreciate the convenience of having someone to go to with questions about our halls, campus life and even the simple ones like how to retrieve a sweeper. I also realize the effort you guys put into your floor programs, and knowing sometimes you don’t get the turnout you are looking for. A few weeks ago, most of my suite and I decided to go to the floor program on third floor- it was a game night. My suitemates and I ended up staying out in the common area for hours playing my favorite board game Taboo, and I think it is safe to say we had a blast. I can’t speak for my entire suite, but I know we all had a very good time. Thank you for putting forth the effort and making Farrell a safe and fun environment; we all appreciate it!

Thank you again,
Abbey Fleckenstein.

Thank you, Campus Ministry…

For always appearing friendly and helpful on first floor Lowe.  The sense of Catholic identity really thrives at Seton Hill because of the work you do on campus.  From coffee talks to Bible studies to special events like Lunch with Liz, the ladies and gentlemen of Campus Ministry are always whipping up ways to keep SHU students connected as a family.
I would like to say a special thank you to Sister Maureen for working with me to set up volunteer initiatives around downtown Greensburg and at Caritas Christi. Without your support and willingness to drive, our Service Saturdays project never would have been put into action.
A thank you also goes out to the Reverend Doctor.  Professor VonSchlichten has been so helpful to me in the past month, and he is always more than willing to lend a listening ear.  He welcomes all to Bible study and conducts it in a comfortable, personal way.
Again, to every member of Campus Ministry: I extend very sincere gratitude to you all for the dedication, kindness and charisma you bring to the Hill.

Thanks again,

Adrienne Bracken

Dear Snow Removal Maintenance crew,
The students at Seton Hill cannot thank you enough for all the effort and work you put into keeping the walkways and lots clear and salted. We complain about having to walk to and fro in the cold and the wind without realizing how much worse we would be without having clear walks. Without your hard work and perseverance against the snow and ice, we would be slipping and sliding all over the place; there would be twisted ankles and thrown out backs galore. Thank you for battling the frozen tundra — for putting yourselves in danger of frostbite and hypothermia so that we may be able to trudge to classes without the extra hassle of snow build up. Thank you for keeping us safe and our pant legs slightly less soggy. Thank you.

Sarah Last to Cleaning Staff on 5th Maura:

Dear Cleaning Staff on 5th Maura,
I wanted to thank you for all of the hard work and dedication you have toward your job. I see you almost every morning on 5th floor Maura, scrubbing our bathrooms, taking out the trash that seems to have accumulated overnight and making sure we have clean showers to use. Even though we’ve only seen each other in passing, I don’t think I’ve ever seen you in a bad mood. The dedication to your job is seen by everyone who lives up here. When you hold the door open for girls struggling to get their keys out of their backpacks or mopping up the puddles on the shower floor we forget about, actions like those mean a great deal. I want to let you know that your efforts don’t go unnoticed. I think I speak for everyone on 5th Maura when I say that we truly appreciate the fact that you keep our floor clean and orderly.

Thank you so much for everything you do!
