As Nicole wraps up her tenure with us in the coming months, Pat and I would like to honor her for her outstanding contributions to the lab. Many people think of her when they think of the Spoon Survivor game, but that is too simplistic. Beyond the competitiveness of the game, Nicole appreciates the sense of familiarity and amity such a game can engender. Aside from the dedication to one's job, completing tasks on deadline, and always being around when needed that are typically true of achievement award winners and certainly true of Nicole, it's her attitude that sets her apart from her fellow supervisors. Nicole has challenged the status quo and was willing to fight for what she thought was right from the very beginning of her time as an SIT, and isn't afraid to ask questions to get to the heart of the matter. However, she also quick to take responsibility if things do not go as intended or expected, and does not give excuses or accept them from those she supervisors. Nicole magnanimously volunteers for projects, even unpopular ones, without complaint, and produce excellent results. She has also come up with some creative solutions to manage her schedule and her work responsibilities, such as using Skype. Pat and I are sorry to see Nicole leave us, but we are happy to have had her on our staff and wish her every future success. Congratulations! {ss}

College Ave is pleased to present Kasia as the October Consultant of the Month! Kasia is a new consultant this semester, but in a short time she has gained our trust as a reliable and valuable addition.

September 2017 College Avenue Consultant of the Month (Fall Semester)

Sean made his debut in the labs just this year. During his short time here, Sean has proven to be a reliable team player, continuously doing his job to the best of his ability during each and every shift. Sean also was extremely helpful during SWAT weekend - providing exceptional customer service to newer students as if he was a veteran consultant. His exceptional work ethic has earned him the nickname "Elios Pizza", because like a frozen box of Elios he is reliable, not too excessive, and gets the job done. Sean continues to hold high expectations for himself while working in the labs, keeping a possible ResNet certification in mind. Outside of OIT, Sean studies ITI and hopes to get into a Business Analyst role after graduation. Sean practically breathes sports, being an avid Jets, Yankees, and Rangers fan.

You're already making us proud! Congratulations on Consultant of the Month! {ch}

Linda Dolan

February 2005 Busch Consultant of the Month (Spring Semester)

She always does so with a smile on her face, setting a good example for new consultants and veterans alike. It is easy to overlook consistently good consultants, because that is what you just come to expect from them, but we wanted to make sure we recognized Linda's work.

She is always more than willing to help a patron with a difficult question or dilemma. Lauren is constantly moving around the lab during her shift helping patrons and troubleshooting software and hardware related matters. The only time Lauren is sitting is usually when she is working the monitor station greeting every patron with a friendly smile. Her technical ability is a very important asset to the lab. She will not hesitate to examine any predicament that arises and always notifies the lab accordingly. She makes it a point to provide as much information as possible when informing management about any technical problems in the lab.

For these reasons, we are proud to announce Lauren Domingo as our Consultant of the Month! {bo}

Carlos Antonio Dominguez

September 2014 College Avenue Consultant of the Month (Fall Semester)

In his first month working, Carlos has already left an impact on the labs. After he was hired and promoted to a consultant during the summer, he was accepted and trained for ResNet dispatch and helped out during SWAT weekend. Throughout the busy temporary period, Carlos was never idle. He played a big role in resolving many tickets. When he wasn't out on ResNet tickets or helping patrons with walk-in issues, he was always seen moving about and enforcing lab policies. He is always prompt in bringing important matters to the attention of the supervisory team, whether he was working at the main lab or at remote sites. Thank you, Carlos, for your hard work and effort towards providing excellent customer service and congratulations on being our ResNet Consultant of the Month! {ab}

February 2015 Livingston Consultant of the Month (Spring Semester)

Carlos just started working on Livingston this spring semester and he has already become a valuable part of the Livingston team. Like a seasoned veteran, Carlos can always be counted on to handle any situation that arises in the lab. Before leaving every shift he works, he always asks the supervisors if there is anything else he can do before leaving.

Congratulations to Carlos Antonio Dominguez on being named a February 2015 Livingston Consultant of the Month! {mm,lw}

Luke diligently performs rounds and maintains a good working relationship with the supervisors. The most impressive aspect about Luke is his willingness to learn more in order to help those who frequent the lab.

The Help Desk is pleased to announce Mark Dookharan as the Network Support Consultant of the Month! Mark began working at the Help Desk in the Fall of 2014 and has consistently given great customer service to everyone he assists. Mark often arrives early for his shifts and is always eager to help. His outstanding customer service skills and his eagerness to learn led to Mark being promoted to a Level 2 Network Support consultant and he has continued to excel in this position. He is an Electrical and Computer Engineering major who is planning to graduate in the Spring of 2017, but when he is not busy with school or working at the Help Desk, Mark enjoys a wide range of hobbies.

Thanks for all your hard work Mark! Congratulations on being our Network Support Consultant of the Month! {kt}

September 2015 Help Desk Consultant of the Month (Fall Semester)

Mark Dookharan, one of the vanguard in the Help Desk's group of Level 2 Consultants, has a love/hate relationship with computers. His initial motivation for wanting to work at the Help Desk was that he wanted to save other people from the frustrations he suffered while fixing his own computer issues. A valuable staff member, Mark specializes in Network Support and deals with issues ranging from virus-based network bans all the way to switch work for issues in the residence halls. Mark can often be found at the front station dispensing his networking wisdom to incoming users. He is a both a fountain of assistance for the Help Desk's Level 1 Consultants and a friendly fellow fostering and improving the general positive atmosphere of the Help Desk. His educational and personal lives are no less impressive. Mark is a student in Electrical and Computer Engineering specializing in human-machine interfaces which are devices that serve a wide range of purposes including armored exoskeletons, eye-movement based computing inputs, and mechanical assistance for the disabled. Mark's hobbies are also widely varied. He enjoys playing the classical guitar, the piano, and the guzheng - a type of Chinese zither harp. He also puts on lightshows and takes large quantities of photographs in his free time. His favorite past-time, however, is listening to music. When asked about his favorite bands, he listed Din En Grey (Japanese experimental metal), Absurdist (bubbly hip-hop), and Guess No Kiwami Otome (also Japanese experimental metal). When asked for a quote Mark had this to say, "Work Hard, Play Hard". We would like to congratulate you on your hard work by recognizing you as a Consultant of the Month - keep up the great work Mark! {sn}

Spring 2011 Busch Supervisor Achievement Award (Spring Semester)

When she is working and something needs to get done Annie is always willing to take on anything. She is very proactive and tries to ensure that all issues are resolved in a timely manner. Annie doesn't need to be reminded of deadlines because she always finishes her tasks early. When Annie is on duty, she handles all issues with ease.

Annie not only provides a skilled jack of all trades to our supervisor staff, but her enthusiasm is contagious. It's impossible to work with Annie without her presence putting you in a better mood. To see the care and enjoyment she gets out of working, you just need to look at the Consultant of the Month signs that she works on every month, trying to ensure that each one shows our pride in our consultants as well as the fun of working here. She has taken on tasks from Troubleshooting and Repair to One on One Committee always trying to learn as much as she can. Annie's attitude, enthusiasm and desire to take on all that she can are just a few of the reasons that we have selected her as the Busch Supervisor of the Semester for the Spring 2011. Congratulations Annie!!!! {mo,wll}

Christine Doub

September 2009 College Avenue Consultant of the Month (Fall Semester)

During her first few weeks working at the College Avenue labs, Christine Doub has stood out as an excellent consultant. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of the workings of the lab have been noticed by lab supervisors on more than one occasion. Her friendly personality makes her very approachable and pleasant to work with. Christine is constantly helping people in the lab and is always on her feet. We are proud to have an employee such as Christine and look forward to a great semester with her.

Fall 2011 College Avenue Supervisor Achievement Award (Fall Semester)

This is Christine's second year as a supervisor on College Avenue. She has played a major role in the daily operation of the computer labs on our campus. Christine has seamlessly taken on more responsibility this semester after the departure of several of our supervisors. These responsibilities include hiring, scheduling, maintaining employee-tracking databases, and decorating our five sites on College Avenue. Christine is often called upon to help give her input on committees. She has also taken on the responsibility of helping to interview and train SITs. Her contributions have not gone unnoticed by CAC Management. Christine's suggestions and her ability to make decisions have had a positive influence on lab operations. Consultants enjoy working with Christine, because she reaches out to them by encouraging everyone to work on lab outreach events as well as to help decorate the lab. For instance, Christine had every consultant on duty make snowflakes to hang up around the lab. Her ability to get her peers to take ownership of things at work is a very admirable quality. Christine, you have made working on College Avenue a pleasure for everyone. Congratulations Christine! {bo}

Patrick Douglas

November 2018 Cook/Douglass Consultant of the Month (Fall Semester)

If you work here long enough, it is only fitting that eventually you may earn a Consultant of the Month award - or two. Unfortunately, for Mr. Douglas, there has always been one little issue with awarding him with such accolades. He wasn't actually ever a student worker for us! Basically, he was just kinda pulled off the street and hired as a full time worker - which is something we occasionally were known to do in an earlier century. But to never have awarded Pat doesn't seem right. And so, I am breaking with all precedent - which is something I can do since I edit and send the emails. With that in mind, I am awarding Patrick Douglas Consultant of the Month awards for each month from July 1983, until December 2018. Well, except for March 1993 when - well frankly - he kinda screwed up. But we won't talk about that. We are now entering Pat's last month with us. So some kind words are in order. No matter what your interactions with Pat have been you are likely to view him in a very positive light and have fond feelings towards him. People see him as dependable and a trustworthy co-worker; a great friend; a caring boss; an influential role-model; - and the guy you want at bat if there are two outs in bottom of the ninth and your team is a run behind. Pat has had many roles during his decades with Rutgers, but for many years now he has served as the Assistant Manager helping to oversee the Cook/Douglass labs. The labs have greatly benefited from his time with us. Pat has always been very reliable, handling all his responsibilities with care and diligence - and often asking what else he can do to help out. Still, its his personality that most of us will always remember. From his first day with us he has always fit right in. He is able to seriously tackle difficult situations one minute, and then during the next he can sling the most sarcastic barbs at his fellow Managers - which in our lab culture is a sign of the mutual camaraderie that exists between individuals that have worked side by side for many years. We could go on and on. There is no way to express in a paragraph all he has done during his time with Rutgers, nor how deeply some of us feel towards him. So simply stated, Pat, we want you to know you will be greatly missed. There now, Google will always record you as having officially earned a Consultant of the Month. {jt}

Ryan Downey

March 2013 Livingston Consultant of the Month (Spring Semester)

Ryan joined the Livingston Team last year and has been a great performer ever since. He is always attentive to the needs of the lab and those around him. Ryan follows all protocols and procedures set forth here at Livingston without ever faltering. He is always in control during lab issues making him one of our most dependable consultants. Without a doubt, Ryan can more than handle any situation in which he finds himself. In addition to all of this, Ryan also took a keen interest in the ResNet Dispatch position and has been performing those additional responsibilities well. He has handled every ticket with the utmost professionalism and attention to detail. His consistent performance and desire to aid others is a welcome contribution to all areas of the Livingston Computing Center which we value greatly. The only thing more impressive than Ryan's performance during his shifts, is his perfect performance rating that remains untarnished to this date. For all these reasons and more, we proudly name Ryan Downey a March 2013 Consultant of the Month for the Livingston Labs. Please join us in congratulating Ryan on this achievement. {jt, LW}

Scott Doyle

October 2004 Busch Consultant of the Month (Fall Semester)

Scott Doyle is an exemplary consultant. He is a hard worker who knows his duties, and fulfills them. However, Scott is receiving this award because of his willingness to go beyond what is asked of him. It is easy to see how his friendliness puts users at ease, but his attitude and demeanor also help to create a more enjoyable work atmosphere at ARC. Whether he's offering incisive viewpoints on the current state of US economics, or if he's just joking around with fellow consultants, there's nary a dull moment with Scott around. Good Job!! {rv}

Metaxia Drakopoulos

September 2008 College Avenue Consultant of the Month (Fall Semester)

Maxi is a new consultant at the College Avenue Computer Labs. However, her excellent customer service and technical skills have quickly made her stick out to consultants and management. Maxi is always willing to take coverage or assist the lab whenever it is possible. She has also stayed after her shift to become more knowledgeable about the lab. For example, at the end of her shift she watched how to clear a really difficult jam in one of the RSC printers and observed the installation of a Maintenance Kit. Also, she is not afraid to bring an issue to the attention of a supervisor. Despite being her first semester, Maxi is very comfortable working at remote sites on her own. She handles the most difficult problems presented to her at RSC with ease. Aside from being an excellent consultant, Maxi is very friendly and a pleasure to be around. For these reasons, we are proud to announce Metaxia Drakopoulos as College Avenue Computing Center's Consultant of the Month! {bo}

Spring 2010 College Avenue Supervisor Achievement Award (Spring Semester)

It has been a pleasure working with Metaxia Drakopoulos throughout her tenure at the College Avenue Computer Labs. Maxi was promoted to Assistant Lab Supervisor about a year ago and has established herself as a great resource to our staff. Maxi truly goes above and beyond the expectations of her position. Her cheerful personality is admired by all of her colleagues. She always enthusiastically volunteers to do special projects for the Labs. For example, she spent a lot of time working on preparation for Rutgers Day 2010. Her presence at the event did not go unnoticed by her coworkers or the happy visitors who came to get their picture taken and helped make the day a great success. Maxi's genuine personality and work ethic exemplifies the best of what we look for in a computer lab supervisor. Maxi played a major role this past semester in ensuring that the lab had proper staffing in order to remain open during the numerous snow storms to hit Rutgers University. On several occasions, Maxi has worked past midnight only to come back at seven in the morning to open the lab without complaints. This kind of dedication is what she tries to instill in her staff. Despite it being her last semester, Maxi has worked to make sure that the lab will be in good hands after she leaves, spending a considerable amount of time to train new SITs. Maxi also makes sure to handle things that may slip through the cracks. Her attention to detail has allowed the lab to run very smoothly this semester. She has taken an active role in establishing a great working relationship with our Network Operations and Computer Repair departments to ensure that all of the machines in the lab work properly. Her always pleasant attitude and desire to learn new things sets a high bar for those who follow in her footsteps. We are grateful to have such a great employee like Maxi on our staff. Unfortunately, Maxi will be leaving us this semester and will be sorely missed by all. We are certain that those who have the opportunity to work with Maxi in the future will enjoy her presence as much as we have. It is for these reasons that we are proud to announce Maxi Drakopoulos as College Avenue's Supervisor of the Semester. Congratulations Maxi! (bo, cmb)

Nicholas Dry

September 2016 Cook/Douglass Consultant of the Month (Fall Semester)

Nicholas Dry is an outstanding consultant. His attention to detail, can-do attitude and troubleshooting ability were greatly appreciated during SWAT this year. Nicholas is always on task and always looking to help others. He is proactive in addressing issues and always comes into work prepared. His friendly personality and kind disposition make him a pleasant person to work with. He always offers up helpful advice to other co-workers and is a great source of knowledge. Many times, if others are unsure how to address a technical issue, Nicholas is there to lend a hand. When the computer labs were swamped with tickets from Help Desk at the beginning of the semester, Nicholas took charge and cleared the most tickets of any consultants, without any ticketing issues. Because of his phenomenal work ethic, ability and attitude, Nicholas has been awarded the consultant of the month title for September. Congratulations Nicholas, you earned it! {wh}

April 2017 Livingston Consultant of the Month (Spring Semester)

Nick Dry joined OIT a number of years ago and has consistently proven his skills and talents as a consultant to his management teams. He recently decided to make Livingston his primary campus and we could not be happier. His unrivaled work ethic along with his friendly personality make him a joy to have around the lab. Consultants and patrons alike know that Nick will not shy away from the most difficult of challenges and will resolve them to the fullest extent of his abilities. He is dispatch certified and has tackled tough router issues around Livingston, while also assisting patrons in the lab with their technical problems. Nick has built up an excellent rapport with all his co-workers as well as his management team. We trust that Nick will take care of the lab when on duty and know that he will exhaust all possible resources at his disposal in order to complete the task at hand. His reliability, unparalleled work ethic, and outstanding personality have earned Nick Dry bei ng named a Livingston Consultant of the Month for April 2017. Congratulations Nick! {NH, LW}

Fall 2017 Livingston Consultant Achievement Award (Fall Semester)

The Fall semester is always a hectic time in the labs, but Nick's continued excellence and experience has put consultants and patrons alike at ease. Unfortunately, after two years of service at OIT, Nick leaves us this semester and begins his journey as a professional. Consultants come and go, but someone like Nick leaves an everlasting impression on the labs. Knowledgeable of networking issues, customer service, virus remediation, and software troubleshooting, there's not a problem Nick can't handle. Reality really starts to set in when the labs lose a great consultant. Years have gone by, but you continued to bring the same attitude you had since day one. Expressing the kindness, helpfulness and attention to detail you bring to the workplace is something we simply cannot fully describe in words. Congratulations on on being named the Livingston Consultant of the Semester for Fall 2017, Nick! Thank you for all the hard work you've put in during your time with us. We are saddened by your departure, but excited for you to begin your career! {jp,lw}

Jonathan Du

March 2014 Busch Consultant of the Month (Spring Semester)

Jon is one of our most proactive consultants. He is constantly out of his seat, assisting patrons with any issues they may be having. He will not stop until he has found a solution to their issue. Jon handles being under pressure very well; when the lab is full and the printers are out of whack, you can expect Jon to quickly resolve the printing issue without a problem. He is always willing to help his fellow consultants or supervisory staff, no questions asked. Jon takes each step of this job in stride and will be the first to rectify anything upon mention. Jon delivers excellent customer service with a smile on his face at all times, and it is with pleasure that we announce Jon as our Consultant of the Month for March. Congratulations! {dg,bc}

Mike has proved himself to be the perfect candidate to work at some of College Avenue's highest traffic labs during peak hours. When faced with an unusual situation, Mike approaches the situation professionally and with care.

Regardless of where Mike's journey takes him after graduation, we are confident that his work ethic will help him go far. Mike, continue to strive for greatness and set a positive example. On behalf of the College Avenue Labs, it is an honor to present you with the Consultant of the Month Award! {kxs}

Fall 2002 College Avenue Consultant Achievement Award (Fall Semester)

Harsh Dutia has been an exemplary consultant at the College Avenue labs for several semesters, and has helped the labs run smoothly and efficiently in his time with us. This semester more so than even, Harsh has demonstrated that he is an exceptional asset to our consulting team, and has made efforts and provided assistance to users, co-workers, and management that truly distinguish him from the rest of the staff. Harsh wears adjectives such as "diligence" and "friendliness" on his sleeve like no other consultant on staff. He is always on his toes and on the look-out to resolve any user's problems. Without a doubt, Harsh is one of the very best consultants we have had the privilege to work with because of his genuine care for the lab, as well as his always-positive attitude towards co-workers, supervisors, and, most of all, users.

He has been an example when it comes to enforcing (and following) policy, customer service, work ethic, and general care of the labs. Harsh has spent many hours working on special projects, helping out with repair tasks, and has taken on extra duties offered to him by supervisors. Harsh always has an optimistic and positive attitude when he comes to work, which is reflected in the way he consults in the lab and interacts with users. His outgoing personality makes him extremely approachable and friendly, and his inquisitive attitude has allowed him to learn and help out in the lab much more than consultants usually do. Everyone enjoys working with Harsh, and users are always pleased with the service he provides. {rk, ok, np, eo, jh}
