STUDENT MAINTENANCE WORKERS Juliana Alvarado, left and Amber Blackmore work for Facilities Services and occasionally perform a job few people think about. During the winter, Alvarado and Blackmore, along with other student employees, clean and maintain the tunnels that run the length of the Allendale Campus and house the utility pipes that route steam and water to buildings. When not cleaning the tunnels, they are busy making campus deliveries and performing other maintenance tasks. Alvarado, an exercise science major, said she appreciates her new job skills. "I had never used a drill before working here," she said. Alvarado also works at the Mary Idema Pew Library Learning and Information Commons. Blackmore, a business management major, said she and other student workers completed a safety training course before starting their jobs with Facilities Services. "It's a fun job, we also get to go to the department's chili cook-off and holiday parties," she said. 16 Winter '15
