Jeremy Hunkapillar is another one of our student assistants who has worked the Public Services desk, helping students find lost documents, navigate TigerWeb, make copies, and so much more. Regrettably, he'll be leaving the library this summer. The library staff wishes you best of luck in your next endeavor, Jeremy!
1. How long have you worked at the library and what was your favorite part of the job?
I began working in the library last fall—maybe the first of September 2013. My favorite part of the service desk was helping people regain coordination so they could focus on more important things.
2. What’s the greatest lesson or skill you've learned while working as a student assistant?
This is hard to answer. Though, I believe, working with large printers was most educational.
3. What advice do you have for students interested in working in the library?
Do not be bias in the least bit. Libraries, no matter where they are located, are places where people learn. Bias behaviors should not be learned in the library, especially.
4. What are your plans now that you’re leaving Chattanooga State?
I plan to attend a four year college. Where I will attend has not been specifically determined as of yet. I would prefer to become a doctor, psychologist or psychiatrist. However, life’s obstacles and other hindrances may arise. In any case, I am prepared for whatever comes before me. When I am not on an adventure, I am merely in-between adventures. No matter what, I will recall my library experience—thank you, it was an adventure.
