Student Worker of the Month for June 2016

Matthew is a student employee with the IT Communication team where he assists the campus with maintaining equipment such as phones, televisions and projectors. During his employment he’s learned how to create lines to phone extensions, program Alcatel phones and  troubleshoot the classroom multimedia systems. His assistance has been integral to helping the team prepare the new Nexus building for opening.

Matthew is a Computer and Management Information Systems major and expects to graduate with his B.S. in  May 2017. He would like to pursue a career in the field of computer hardware and software or telecommunications.

Here are some of the comments we received from IT staff members and other student workers who nominated him:

“Matt is a self-motivated, hardworking individual that is a value to Communications, IT and the Adelphi community. From the first day in joining our team Matt has displayed various characteristics such as being an effective learner, a team player, honest, respectful, and helpful; all of which make him a great employee. It is a continued pleasure to have Matt as part of our team, as we appreciate all of his hard work and dedication.”

“The best quote that best describes Matt and his work is ‘Reliability is the precondition for trust.'” 

Ever since Matt started with us he has been very proactive about any task we give to him. He always has a lot of enthusiasm in finding a solution and is not afraid to fail in order to find the right path.”
Matthew is a respectful, responsible individual. He is a pleasure to work with.
