Lyndsay Reid is a new name to the newspaper, but she is definitely not a new face to the USU Eastern Campus. Reid got her start as an administrative assistant in July 2009; a year later in August 2010, she became an academic office assistant. Last July 2011, she was promoted to an academic adviser.
In January 2012, because of the changes in administration, her job title changed to academic/career adviser, but her tasks remained the same.
What made her want to be an academic advisor? She replied “I kinda fell into it; I kept moving up and learning new things.”
In Reid’s opinion, the best part about USU Eastern campus, “I like the smaller campus and area, students can get involved more and I get to know the students better, with such a small campus.” She cares about student’s wishes and goals for their own futures. She adds, “Don’t let anyone discourage you from going into something you really want to do. Don’t let others opinion influence you.”
Her favorite part about her career is, “Working on a college/education environment. I loved college and I like not really leaving.” Reid attended CEU and received her associates’ degree and then transferred to Southern Utah University to earn her bachelor’s degree in fine arts and illustration.
Reid’s passion lies in her art. Since she was little, she has always wanted to be an artist. When she isn’t working at the college helping students, she spends her time focusing on her illustrations. Getting time to focus on her personal illustrations was one of her favorite parts of this past year. “I will always do art, it’s something I have to have otherwise I would have a void.” The illustration provided is a personal piece from her animal- totem series.
