Saint Mike's students do some amazing research.  Their senior projects would be considered graduate level work at most colleges.

What do you like most about teaching/working at Saint Michael's College?

I love helping students with their research. Sometimes that means helping students individually at the reference desk and sometimes it means working behind the scenes to develop library resources and services to meet their needs.

What do you like about Saint Michael's students?

Students here work hard at their academics, their research, and their community service activities. They like to think and they like to help people, which is a great combination.
