Recently I sat down for an interview with Dr. James Watters, RIT’s Senior Vice President of Finance and Administration, to talk about the Better Me program that he’s championed since it was introduced to the RIT community in 2007.

So why should I join Staff Council?

That’s the question I asked Steve Schwab 6 years ago. Steve was the corporate relations director at that point, he was my peer in development and a Staff Council member. He said that I would have the chance to meet many people at RIT I would never come across in my day-to-day job and I would get a great view of what is going on at RIT. I trusted Steve so I went for it and he was right. I have met really great people from departments I did not know existed: First Year Enrichment, Building Services, Risk Management – who knew?

Comfort Food from Nathan's Soup and Salad

As I walked around campus the other day, the wind grabbed me with a freezing hand.  I needed something to warm me up.  I needed something to comfort my chilled bones.  I needed soup.  I immediately changed direction and headed toward the SAU.  I knew that Nathan’s Soup and Salad would welcome me with a variety of hot soups and tasty breads.
