IT Student Worker of the Month

News, Announcement

IT-Student-Worker-of-the-Month-CertificateThe staff of the Office of Information Technology would like to congratulate

Matthew Rydzewski

Student Worker of the Month for July 2014

Matt is a Mathematics major who has worked for the Office of Information Technology at Adelphi since Fall 2011. He’s worked as a Lab Consultant for the Help Desk and for the Network Technicians. He’s been involved in campus intramural basketball and volleyball and also enjoys tennis, swimming and video games.

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

Matthew Rydzewski“Matt came to us with little computer knowledge and now he is a reliable tech to send and complete service calls. Matt always says “”please”” and “”thank you”” to our user base and is a pleasure to work with.”

“Matthew Rydzewski is fine example of what a student of the month should be. Matt came to us with little or no computer knowledge, but, is now one of our lead student techs who teaches his fellow students. Matt has been known to stay later to try to get the job done. We almost have to make him leave at the end of his shift.  He follows direction, and does not need to be told more than once how to do something.

“Matt, in my opinion and through observation in the past year, improved the most among the students while working with the Net Techs.”

“This hard-working student has yet to be recognized. Calling Matt a role-player is a gross understatement. He is always reliable, always on time, never turned down jobs, and with job completion rate over 90% to boot.  He is also the most improved student worker. … now he can handle pretty much any jobs with aplomb.”
