The second full week of April is National Student Employment Week. BLAIS & ERC staff are grateful for the reminder and opportunity to celebrate our undergraduate student workers and our post-bac and graduate fellows, whom we adore and on whom we--and people from the BC/CU communities and beyond--depend.

We invited workers from the Archives, BLAIS Communications, Circulation, ERC, IMATS, and the Zine Library to share their name, area of study, an image of or related to themselves, and a response to the question

If your BLAIS/ERC job was a food, what food would it be?

These are some of their responses...

Applied Math! Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Powerberries. A mystery to those who haven't tasted the ERC yet, they're like what's inside?? What kinds of skills (or berries) can I acquire in there? But they are intrigued by the dark chocolate covering, aka our impressive mapping and graphing skills. So they take a taste and can't get enough! And it's specifically a Trader Joes brand food item because our Associate Director, Alisa, has a serious Trader Joe's problem.
