Student Centers employs over 100 students every year for a wide variety of positions on both the Fairfax and SciTech campuses. Every year, our employees graduate from Mason and go on to do amazing things. We are so proud of the student employees who are graduating later this month. This year’s graduating employees have each brought their own unique skillset to their positions, and it was an honor to have them be part of the Student Centers team.

Thank you Student Centers and everyone who works there. You make Mason a better place!
Student Centers Position: Corner Pocket Operations Supervisor
Major/Minor: Major in Music Education
I’ll be attending Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA and working towards a Master’s Degree in Tuba Performance
The homey atmosphere, generally chilled out vibes and accessibility to D.C.
The pursuit of even higher education and the new adventures and challenges that lie ahead of me.
The people. The friends that I have made from working at CP are some of the best that I have.
Leave your comfort zone. Take risks. Find what you’re passionate about and do it.
I am elated that I am going to be a married man in a little over a year. I get to marry my sweetheart who I met on my freshman year residence hall.
Student Centers Position: Marketing Assistant
Major/Minor: Major in Creative Writing, Minor in Communication
I’m working at KME.Digital in Fairfax (after some much-needed time off) as a content writer. I interned here over the semester and I’m really excited to join as an official employee after graduation. I’m also keeping my Student Centers position over summer for some extra money. Outside of work, I’ll finally have more time to continue my passion: writing stories and novels.
The amazing diversity and mix of cultures on our campus. Mason has always held the belief that everyone belongs here. In my four years, I’ve interacted and worked with so many talented people from different backgrounds. I’ll miss this close interaction a lot, but will challenge myself to reach out to others who are different than me even after I graduate.
I’m really looking forward to no longer having homework and being able to watch Netflix guilt-free! On a slightly more serious note, I’m also excited (and scared) to start “adulting,” which to me right now means throwing myself out into the world of work and responsibility, pursuing my passions, figuring out exactly what I want in life, and working to become the best version of myself that I can be.
Most of all, I’ve truly enjoyed working with all the people who work here, both fellow student staff and full-time professional staff. As a former office assistant and current marketing assistant, I’ve had the opportunity to work with so many incredible people with a wide range of backgrounds and talents. Student Centers has a place for everyone, and I have felt like part of the family ever since I started working here near the end of my freshman year.
Take all the opportunities you can while in college. Is there a club you’re interested in? Go to a meeting. Job fair is coming up? Print out some resumes and go. At the same time, though, don’t get completely wrapped up in making sure every single detail of your future is secure before you graduate. You don’t need to find your dream job while you’re in college. You don’t even need to know exactly what you want to do in life! Try your best and work hard, but don’t get discouraged if you’re not sure where you’re going. It’ll all fall into place eventually.
Student Centers Position: Administrative Office Assistant
Major/Minor: Major in Forensic Science, Minor in Biology
Forensic Science Graduate program at Mason and working as a DNA lab technician at BODE Cellmark Forensics
The numerous opportunities both for work and school knowledge
Starting a new chapter of adulthood while practicing what I have learned in undergrad at my new job
Working alongside great staff who want to see you succeed in and out of college.
Time management is key, as well as knowing that everything is possible if you put effort into it.
I would have never thought that I would be in VA getting my bachelor’s and masters in Forensic Science while being born and raised in Puerto Rico.
Student Centers Position: Graphic Designer/Marketing Assistant
Major/Minor: Major in Art and Visual Technology with a Concentration in Graphic Design, Minor in Business
Right after graduation, I’ll be taking some time off and traveling to Europe, mainly England. Once I get back, my goal is to apply to any internships or positions in the Web Design field. I would love to work for a big company as a part of the Digital Design Team.
The thing I will miss most about Mason is the community I have built for myself here. Through the School of Art, AIGA, and working on campus I have built a support system that allows me to grow not only as a designer but in my personality as well. I feel safe here, so stepping outside of this comfort zone will be hard.
After college, I am most looking forward to the new opportunities that will come my way, especially in the Graphic Design world. I am eager to start working and find my place within the larger Design community.
I have been working for Student Centers for a little under 2 years now and it has been a great experience. I love the collaborative environment that exists within the team. Whenever I have an idea for a design that’s out of the norm, I’m met with courage and the opportunity to pursue it.
My best advice for incoming Mason Freshman would be to take advantage of your time here. Four years seems like a lot but it really does fly by. There are so many great opportunities on campus, so I would definitely get involved and attend all the great events Mason has to offer.

I’m obsessed with all things Disney.
Student Centers Position: Lead Office Assistant
Major/Minor: Major in Applied Computer Science Game Design, Minor in Business
I’m going down to Richmond to escape the traffic up here. Maybe I’ll get a job at VCU for a tuition waver and work on a masters degree!
Its safety, beauty, and diversity. I love Richmond, but it is an ugly city.
The temporary illusion of freedom
Developing a family here. Through years of continuously changing classes and living situations, it was nice to have SC as a constant in my life.
Don’t let the lack of parental supervision get to your head.
My life motto is “Leave it better than you found it.”
Congratulations to all of our graduating employees for this amazing accomplishment! We will miss them, but we wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors.
