Janice Stone, 1971 1974
I came to work one day very tired. There had been a lot of illness across campus, and it was contagious. My supervisor said I should lay down and rest. I guess I looked really sick because she didn't rouse me and I woke up 10 minutes before my night shift was over. It was confirmed by my doctor the next day that I had mononucleosis.

Lyndsay Ommen McCollum, 1997 1999
I have to say that my experience at Cal Poly and more importantly my time at the Kennedy Library changed my life and took me in a direction I never thought I'd take. I have a huge spot in my heart for the Kennedy Library. Librarianship is the best job EVER. In 2002, I ventured up to UCLA and in 2004 earned my masters in library and information studies. As soon as my daughter begins school, I'm going to get back in the game.

When I started working, some of the old card catalogs still sat empty in the elevator lobby. One of my favorite student work experiences was the special event when the card catalogs were ceremoniously auctioned off in the presence of many current and former staff and friends of the Library. I was honored to be present at such a symbolic event.
Now: Information Technology Consultant

Alex Donoghue, 2006 2010
Throughout the whole four years that I worked at the library I was routinely confused for another student who worked at the library. His name was Andrew, which is close to mine, Alex. He was also tall like I am, but there was one key difference, he always had a goatee (much like an evil twin) while I either had a clean face or a full beard. Sometimes people would call me Andrew while other times they would ask me to do things that only Andrew could do. It was very annoying.
