General Manager (email@example.com): Tina Iannarilli
Hi, my name is Tina Iannarilli and for the past 24 years I have had the pleasure of serving STUdents as General Manager of STU SU. I know what you are thinking, she must have started when she was 12. *wink *wink. I joke, but I wasn’t much older than most students at that time. I have been truly blessed to work as part of one of the best institutions on the planet in my humble opinion.
I have always loved the close-knit community that STU provides like a family really. The opportunity to work with a team of student leaders that cares so much about fostering that family vibe and taking care of our own has been an amazing experience. I won’t go on about everything our leaders do for you as they will toot their own horns I am sure in their own bios.
I will say to those of you new to STU, this is going to a great year and I am so excited to work alongside your STU SU Exec and Council for 2018/19.
If you ever find yourself wandering the halls of the SUB stop by and say Hi! Room 31 is located in the armpit of the SUB and it gets lonely there so visitors are always welcome!
All the Best,
