Having started his position at the 24-hour desk located in the Commons
Building on the Southside of the Texas A&M University campus in the
beginning of this semester, Jett Black has been an outstanding help at
his work station during the month of November by aiding students and
visitors with various questions they might have about the southside of
campus, as well as the entire campus in general. |
Working at the 24-hour desk means that he often has to work late night
shifts as well as some shifts during the day. Even though Jett has
several other responsibilities on the Texas A&M campus, such as being
the Student Services Chair for the Texas A&M Student Senate or the Vice
President of Financial Development and Scholastics for the National
Residence Hall Honorary's Dan Mizer chapter, he is even more dedicated
when it comes to working at the 24-hour desk.
While working, Jett enjoys getting to know students and their names
whenever they come up to the desk to ask for directions, when they
request keys to one of the music rooms at the Commons, or just when they
feel like talking to him in general. Several residents and students in
generals have gotten to know him through his great and continuous
assistance. Having a job like this could easily get boring or even
annoying when the same questions are repeated over and over again.
Nonetheless, Jett takes his work seriously and makes sure to help people
to the best of his abilities, while at the same time remaining friendly
and calm at all times.
The month of November has been an especially busy time for Jett at the
24-hour desk with the Thanksgiving holiday happening in the middle of
the month, with the final examination period coming closer, and also
with there being a lot of future Texas A&M Students touring the campus
and the residence halls with their parents.
During the time building up towards the Thanksgiving holiday as well as
the days following it, Jett volunteered to work additional shifts in
order to ensure that other student workers could go home to their
families for the holiday break early or to stay home for a longer amount
of time, even though that meant that he had less time to spend with his
own family and friends back home.
The final examination period is approaching fast, which also means that
the student body in general gets more stressed about school. This makes
the residents generally more susceptible to forgetting or losing there
access cards or room keys, which leads to the 24-hour desk being busier
than usual as well.
The month of November is also the time where most families of future
students start touring the residence halls, specifically the ones around
the Southside Commons. Jett has been very helpful and patient whenever
families come up to the desk to ask questions, and he always made sure
that they all found there way over to the spot where the residence hall
tours take place and that all their questions would be answered, so that
a good first impression of the Texas A&M campus can be made.
Overall, Jett has been a great support for anyone that was seeking help
at the 24-hour desk during the busy month of November and is ready to
continue making people's visits to the Southside Commons on the Texas
A&M campus the best they can be in future, similarily busy months like
this one turned out to be.
