We also have 24 student staff at the center, upperclassmen who have been through the first year experience and are eager to share tips, stories, and advice.
Hey, guys. I'm Jeremy, and I'm a student manager here at the Tatkon center. We open early and close late, while always having upperclassmen working the resource desk to answer any questions you might have.
