University Libraries

Congrats, grads!

The Research Department staff in Roesch Library is saying congratulations and goodbye to four library student employees: Prathusha Bodhanker, Colleen Castle, Sarah Harrison, and Kevin Schaefer. All are graduating in May and we will miss them. We asked them to share their future plans and what they liked best about working at Roesch Library.

Prathusha Bodhanker, Master's in Electrical Engineering: “I am looking for full time jobs in Engineering. While working in the library I came to know about resources available for students and this knowledge helped me in many ways. My experience working at Knowledge Hub was fun.”

Colleen Castle, Political Science major, Finance minor: "Once I graduate my plan is to move to Washington D.C. to start my internship in Congress for Congressman Peter Roskam. It's been a great four years at UD and being able to get through senior year working at the Knowledge Hub has truly been a blessing. This job allowed me to grow in my communication, research and service skills. They also introduced me to Porch Reads which quickly became my favorite activity to participate in. Four years flew by right in front of me but I wouldn't change a minute of it!”

Sarah Harrison, Criminal Justice and Communication double major, Sociology minor: “After graduation I will be moving back home to Chicago and will be working for a marketing firm located near the city. Working at the library has been such an awesome experience. It has allowed me to stay studious and meet all kinds of people!”

Kevin Schaefer, Accounting major: “After I graduate with a degree in accounting, I plan on moving home to Atlanta, GA to pursue a career in the business world. Additionally, I hope to continue to participate in some musical theatre and performance opportunities, as that is something I've always been passionate about. My time as a student employee at Roesch Library has provided me with the ability to solve problems in an effective manner, among many other valuable skills. I'm grateful for the people I've met, the knowledge I've acquired, and the unforgettable experience to look back on.”

Congratulations and best wishes to our graduates!
