Aaron RaaschAaron Raasch


Title: University Services Associate 2

How long in your current position? How long at the school?
4.5 years in this position and at the school

What are the main reasons students, faculty, or staff would contact you for assistance?
I mostly have contact with faculty and staff who have questions about copy requests, office supplies, mail, purchasing, student hourly help, course evaluations, and events.

What’s one effective (or ineffective) strategy you’ve used to work remotely during Covid?
I shower every morning before work and try to dress the part every day. It’s hard for me to feel like I’m at work in sweats.

What’s a recent book, movie, tv show, podcast, or album (or other) you would recommend and why?
Quite the opposite of a new discovery, but a re-exploration of my first CD, Pieces of You by Jewel, as its 25th anniversary is upon us. If you are looking for a deeply cathartic experience, I can’t recommend it enough. Between “Foolish Games” and “You Were Meant For Me,” I haven’t had dry eyes for a week.

Hobbies/other interests:
French, movies, French books, Beyoncé
