  • Congratulations to Brian Barr, Myers School of Art graduate, on the recent installation of a mural he designed for JOANN Fabric in Downtown Cleveland. Barr received his BFA in graphic design from UA in 2015.

    "After building a remote office space in Downtown Cleveland, JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores wanted to fill a large wall with a mural that defined their brand in that space. The mural I designed shows a single common thread weaving itself between the crafts that define JOANN, and downtown city buildings, connecting everything and everyone together."

  • "I've been here at UA for 8 years. I started out in custodial, working nights cleaning the rec center. I have a background in machining so this position, which is brand new, is perfect for me. I take care of all our custodial equipment in-house, instead of sending it out to be refurbished or repaired. I like fixing the equipment and seeing it get back into our custodians' hands to be able to clean the buildings better and therefore giving our students cleaner facilities."

  • "I actually went to school here at UA and worked with this team when I was a student. It's kind of full circle. I get to work a lot with our student athletes and set up for big sporting events. During the summer we have tons of camp changeovers and I make sure, after all of that, that everything is presentable for our teams."

My favorite part of my job is beautifying the campus... when people come here and look at campus, before they even get into the particulars of the program they are interested in, they pull up and see how it looks. We take pride in making people feel welcome."

  • Zippy's two biggest fears: Aliens & birds with teeth.
    So, while she knows she's a little late to the #BottleCapChallenge (she's 66, ok?) she just couldn't bring herself to #StormArea51.

    RIP to a number of bottles of NORKA Beverage Orange soda. 😬
    But it was all worth it.

Over the summer, we help students who come in for orientation and answer their questions. I also know campus really well so I give directions and help people find what they need, maybe just a place to sit or a place to do homework. It's kind of like air-traffic control."

Once I took some anatomy classes it kinda pushed me away and I shifted my focus more to research. I'm leaning more into the mapping of invasive species and microtopography."

  • "I have a lot of creativity in this job in terms of thinking 'How do I get people inspired about nature?' When I started working at UA, I began to fit certain topics into things that I thought people would find exciting, like the Moth Night Hike or the art and nature interactions. You can appreciate nature just by learning about art.
    The thing that really motivates me the most is to just get out there, and expose as many kids, and adults, to nature as I can, so that they can be as excited about it as I am."
