Meet Ryan Greenough: recipient of a UI Libraries Student Employee Scholarship.
“I had an older brother who attended Tippie before I did, so I knew if I came to Iowa I would get a great education. I also loved the campus and atmosphere of the business building when I took a visit. Working at the library has really helped me develop my social skills in uncomfortable situations. Being able to manage situations with frustrated students and faculty has given me confidence in job interviews and professional settings. I expect to continue to use these skills in a variety of different situations as I move up in my career.I did not realize how much it would help me network and connect with other students. Being in the business building every day has allowed me to meet many different people as they approach the service desk for help.I am paying for my own education, so it has been a goal of mine to graduate from college without student loan debt. This award plays a huge part in helping me accomplish my goals.”
