Donna, Library AssistantDonna - My husband and I live in paradise which is a small farm in the middle of the big woods, where we raise cattle, puppy dogs and kitty cats, wounded birds and the occasional turtle. I love teaching our students where to find information and how to use it. Nothing makes me happier than connecting with our students and seeing their faces light up, when they have “got it.” I graduated from VUJ and have been working in the library services for the last 21 years.


Mary – If you ever come into the Academic Center for Excellence, between the hours of 2:30 till closing at 8:00 pm, that is where you will find me  I will be checking in books, checking out books, helping students find books and articles for their classes, giving makeup tests and, above all, making sure there is fresh coffee ready. I have an associate degree in Behavioral Science/Psychology and I have worked for Vincennes University a total of 20 years.  I enjoy working with students and helping them achieve their goals.
