It means whatever items are required, I have to set them up. I have to have it all ready for the event and make sure everything is working properly for the duration of the event. With students, that means sitting down with them and going over how they should do the event and advising them about what they need to do to have a successful event. But I always say were the first ones here and then the last ones to leave. “What I like the most about this department - besides James Smartt and my great co-workers - is you are involved in a lot of different things and events. In other words, I’m in the middle of everything. Every day is different and I never know when I walk on this campus each day what I’ll be into. Something is always going on. (About being involved as an advisor for many student activities and other functions across campus) “The students, they are like my energy. They are funny. But I just like being in volved. Everybody around here knows I have a lot of energy and know that I’ll get a lot done. “Oh, my name. Everyone asks. All I know is it s Japanese and it doesn’t mean much — I looked it up. My mother said she was watching a beauty pageant show and one of the contestants was named Shiekgo.” ■ SO CARTER SAM" PHILLIPS Sept. 15 through Sept. 30 CAREER WEEK 2008 Sept. 23 - Newell Rubbermaid Mock Interviews Douglass Hall 10 a.m. -4 p.m. Email resumes to to schedule an interview with a Newell Rubbermaid representative.
