Jamie Ruggiero, staff assistant with the Division of Continuing Studies, is a familiar face among Offutt Air Force Base students pursuing a UNO degree. Colleagues say she is a valuable resource to all she comes in contact with.
"She is an adept multi-tasker and is able to prioritize competing demands while remaining responsive and completing all projects on time, often even ahead of schedule," a co-worker wrote. "Even during busy times, she remains friendly and helpful to everyone needing her assistance."
Ruggiero began her service to UNO almost two years ago as a CLEP/DANTES test administrator at Offutt. Currently, she assists military students with the variety of tasks higher education requires, including navigating the admissions process and arranging classes and academic advisors. She also promotes UNO and the bachelor of general studies program at events and education fairs.
"My favorite part of working at UNO is the constant variety that I get to experience by working out at Offutt Air Force Base, as well as on the UNO campus," she said. "I feel extremely privileged to be a representative of UNO at Offutt."
