November CAs of the Month - Tatjana Jovanovic '16 and Cate Rosen '16!

This month, we had so many great nominations that we couldn’t just choose one person!  We have a First-Year Area CA of the Month and an Upperclass Area CA of the Month.

Our First-Year Area CA of the Month is Tatjana Jovanovic '16!  Tatjana is one of our returning CAs continuing to build community with First-Year students in Whitman Hall.  She is clearly excelling in being a great leader and community builder among her residents, the CA Team and the greater St. Lawrence community.  Here's what one person wrote about her in their nomination:

  • "This CA has been an outstanding leader for her community and her fellow CAs. She is always there for her residents, very involved in their academics and social life (such as hanging out in their 2nd floor lounge, conversing and watching movies). The FY community that Tatjana has created and maintained is fantastic and very positive. She is a great model CA, an awesome rounds partner and someone to seek out for advice. She has helped me through multiple situations with my own residents, being a resource as an experienced CA and she is always professional on and off duty. An excellent member of the Residence Life staff, I nominate Tatjana for CA of the month!"

Our Upperclass Area CA of the Month is Cate Rosen '16!  Cate is currently working with residents in Jencks Hall, but last year she worked as an FYP Area CA in Lee Hall.  Although she is new to the suites, she has made a huge impact in her community and has made a mark with her second year as a CA.  Here are a couple of quotes from nominations for this recognition:

  • "She is easily approachable and very nice. Always asks how I am doing and she genuinely cares about all of her residents whenever she sees them. I feel very comfortable approaching her with any problems, and I know she is always looking for ways to assist every one of her residents."
  • "True brilliance embodied within a role model."
  • "Cate should absolutely be CA of the month because she is the most friendly and approachable CA I have ever encountered. Her door is literally ALWAYS open, and she really reaches out to her residents and loves to chat. I believe she knows everyone by name, and she genuinely cares about the well-being of her residents. Her name tags were really on point (ice cream cones) and she always offers up her suite for a good ole' fashion hang out session. She rocks! She also enjoys baking with us and just chillen."

Congratulations, Tatjana and Cate!  We are proud to have both of you represent the CA Team.
