The faculty and staff at Utica College are in a league all of their own. Professors’ doors are always open to stop in and ask questions about class or just to chat! It is not rare to find a professor or a staff member in their office well before hours and far beyond the day has ended. The professional staff here at Utica College truly make a difference in the everyday lives of students, and they are very down to earth and friendly. While the UC professors and staff members are masters of their own kind, I decided to turn the tables and quiz THEM on MY area of expertise!
When I asked Alane Varga, Dean of Diversity and Student Development, to name the celebrity in this photograph, her response was: “Justin Bieber? I have no idea!”
(Correct answer: Seth Myers)
When I asked Mary Agnew, UC’s Copy Center Specialist, who was photographed her response was: “Diddy …?”
When I asked Dr. Thomas Rossi, Professor and Chair of the Management Department, who was photographed his response was: “I’m not sure… He looks like he could be John Travolta’s Son.”
When I asked Scott Welch, Assistant Coordinator of Communication Services, who was photographed his response was: “Paris Hilton. Oh wait, the ‘Hunger Games’ Girl!”
(Correct answer: Jennifer Lawrence)
When I asked Frank Percacciante, Academic Coaching Expert (ACE), who was photographed his response was: “Andrew Garfield”
When I asked, Dr. Daniel A. Barr, Associate Professor of Chemistry, who was photographed his response was: “Some Rap person”
While my participants were all good sports, it is safe to say that some of the faculty and staff of Utica College need to brush up on today’s celebrities. It was hilarious to hear some of the responses I got and shared a few good laughs with some of the professionals on campus.
