“Mike has helped me significantly in my transition from the Advising Center to a departmental advising role - in particular with training me on advertising events and announcements for my three units on our digital screen. In addition to this, Mike helped set up UNL Announce pages for Anthropology and Geography for a weekly advising newsletter and made them accessible for each program's website. Whenever we have an event coming up, I now I can count on Mike for helping advertise it throughout the college. With Mike's assistance I can better serve my students and units and I appreciate everything he has done and will continue to do! Please give him an Applause!”
