Understatement alert: NYU is a big, big place. Think of the dozens of people you might nod hello to on a typical day—in the dining hall, at the library, between buildings, or behind a particular desk. How many do you know by name? What do you know about their lives? By day they are office administrators or landscapers, technology specialists or event managers; by night they’re parents and poets, activists and athletes—and so much more. They’re the dedicated staffers who keep this place running, and in this series we go behind the scenes at their day jobs—and also reveals how they let off steam after work. (We’re coming for you, dude in the Bon Jovi cover band!) ––– Know someone you'd like to see featured here? Send suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
