Spotlight on Student Worker: Alexis Kuhner

Alexis Kuhner began working in Media Resources in June of 2015 and quickly became accustomed to the department. She immediately began working on summer projects and her friendly personality made her a natural at assisting patrons.

Alexis is a Business Administration major from Philadelphia. She chose Scranton because the Jesuit mission appealed to her, and the location provided her the opportunity to be fairly close to home, while still having the distance and opportunities to become her own person.

In addition to her studies and work, Alexis handles social media for Octaves, the University’s a capella group.  She uploads their videos to YouTube and posts to their Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts. She’s also the audio specialist for the club.  Alexis is on the senior class committee for Shamrockin’ Eve where she manages the social media accounts.

The class Alexis most enjoyed during her four years at the University was Introduction to Finance and Investments and her favorite professor is Dr. Jinghan Cai. In her spare time Alexis likes to cook, read and hike, and her favorite book is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The advice Alexis would give to other University of Scranton students would be to take advantage of the resources available at the Library and to check the Media Resources collection before you rent a movie.

A surprising fact about Alexis is that she plans to attend culinary school after graduation, and her career goal is to open her own restaurant!

Thank you, Alexis, for all your hard work. We wish you all the best!
