IT Student Worker of the Month: October 2015


The staff of the Office of Information Technology would like to congratulate

Andrew Olsen

Student Worker of the Month for October 2015

Andy has worked with the Web Communications team since Spring 2015. He is a Computer Science major in the Class of 2017.

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

“Andy has been working with the webteam since spring 2015 and in that time he has expanded his work for us from basic web maintenance to intricate WordPress programming. Over the summer he worked with our Web Technologies team to develop a new Custom HTML Block feature for our WordPress sites, which allows us to embed code in flexible content areas on our webpages, making our site design more nimble and customizable than ever. This semester he is in the process of developing a custom set of “social sharing” buttons for the web site, and will be working with the Web Technologies team on a major overhaul of our News and Events site. He has become a crucial resource for our team in implementing regular improvements on our WordPress sites, and we could never complete these projects without his help!”

“Since Andy started working with us in Spring 2015 he has been a great asset to our team. He not only assists us with day-to-day website maintenance but has proven himself to be skilled at web development and researching new technologies to implement. He tackles every project big and small with ease and makes our work go a lot smoother.”

“Andy has been a great addition to our group. He has made great strides in working with WordPress – adding customization very fast and efficiently. We can always count on him.”

” He is a very good worker, dedicated and concise. He is also very pleasant to work with.”
