Spotlight on Student Workers: Janis Segura

An interest in movies motivated Janis Segura to apply for work in Media Resource/EdLab, and the Library would like to thank her for her hard work and dedication. A senior majoring in Finance, Janis is from Red Bank, New Jersey. She chose The University because the values of social justice and service appealed to her.

Janis is friendly and helpful to all Library patrons. She quickly became proficient in using Sierra and when patrons need assistance, she can quickly point them in the direction of films or books that will best meet their needs. Her favorite things about working in the library are the friendly staff and getting to see the new films that arrive. Her advice for other students is to borrow materials from Media Resources because it offers a variety of feature films in addition to educational material. Her favorite books are the Maze Runner Series and her favorite films are the Dark Knight Trilogy and Whiplash. Her favorite professor is Keith Yurgosky.

In addition to her studies and work in the Library, Janis volunteers with The SMART Program at Scranton High School, and she will begin volunteering with Junior Achievement in a local grade school this month. Her career goals are to work in finance and eventually become a math teacher.

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation Janis! We wish you all the best!
