Staff Appreciation Breakfast

July 06, 2018

By David Abercia, Assistant Vice Provost and Chief of Staff 

For the past four years, Undergraduate Education has held its annual staff appreciation breakfast after the rush of graduation. It’s the division’s way of celebrating accomplishments over the past year. Accomplishments that would not be possible without all of the hard working staff in the division. The breakfast is also an opportunity to recognize staff and set aside time for colleagues to interact across the division.

This year, we introduced more prizes, a photo booth, and less business. The division also awarded Platinum STAR awards for the second year in a row. The awards were meant to recognize exceptionally high-quality work and an exceptional or unique contribution to the unit, division and/or campus. Below is a list of this year’s recipients:

  • Sofia Antuna (Educational Partnership Center)
  • Margie Claxton (Registrar)
  • Greta Gil (Undergraduate Admissions)
  • Sean Malone (Campus Advising Coordination)
  • Maria Orozco (Financial Aid & Scholarships)
  • Lauren Reed (Rachel Carson College)
  • Yiyi Tang (Enrollment Management)
  • Blia Yang (Undergraduate Admissions)

The breakfast was full of fun, games, prizes and bacon! Table activities included a Where on campus is? activity to be filled in to familiarize everyone with the myriad of units in the division and their locations. Click here for the result.

Thanks to everyone who attended! Feedback is valued and can be submitted at
