Since she spent so much time in the Library, Karen Zumba, an Accounting major from Manhattan, decided to apply for a job here, and we’re very happy that she did! In the three years Karen has been working in Media Resources/EdLab she has provided excellent customer service, transferred dozens of archival VHS tapes to DVDs and helped keep the stacks in order. Her friendliness and organizational skills have made her a great fit for the department. Karen’s favorite part of the job has been getting to know faculty members she would not otherwise get to see and meeting her fellow work-study students. Karen’s advice to other students is to take advantage of borrowing DVDs because they are very entertaining.
Karen has done some traveling during her years at Scranton. In 2016 she went to Jamaica with Campus Ministries International Service Program, and in 2017 she studied abroad in Uganda where she had the memorable experience of witnessing a baby being born.
In her free time Karen enjoys hiking, biking and painting. Her favorite class was Christianity of Africa and her favorite film is Seven. After graduation her career goal is to become a CPA.
Thank you Karen for your contributions to the Library. Congratulations on your upcoming graduation! We wish you all the best in the future!
