Clayton State University junior Uyen Lam (Riverdale) recently became the University’s International Student Services Office (ISSO) student assistant. Lam is currently a pre-nursing major and just interviewed for nursing program.
“My major responsibilities as a student assistant at ISSO are assisting with various administrative tasks such as planning and promoting ISSO events, international orientations, and workshops,” she says. “I will also assist international students with general inquiries and serve as a link between students and ISSO”.
Lam is enthusiastic about her new position.
“Assisting fellow students is always my desire,” she says. “I used to work as a student assistant at the Career Center and Science Lab in my old school in Boston, and at The Loch Shop this summer.
“I am honored to be a new student assistant at ISSO. This is a good opportunity for me to meet, assist, and share experience with other international students. Also, I'm glad that I can work with and learn from my supervisor, Brett Reichert, who has an intensive experience in teaching and working with people from many different countries.”
Lam looks forward to gaining more experience by working with diverse students. She would also like to assist ISSO with bringing better services to former, current and future international students at Clayton State University.
