Featured Student Employees


Aidan Patterson

Our December featured student employee is Aidan Patterson, a junior here at IUPUI. Aidan is currently majoring in mechanical engineering technology and works as a service and information desk student assistant.

When asked what he enjoys most about his position, Aidan states, “My favorite thing about my position would have to be the people that I work with. Whether it be a slow day and I can just communicate with them and have a good time, or if I need assistance solving a problem, I can always depend on them.”

As a student employee, Aidan said he has learned many valuable skills, including problem solving. He believes this will be a very useful skill for him later on in his engineering career. His supervisor, John Cooper, said he admires Aidan for being such a warm and welcoming face for students to see when they come to the library.  

We are looking forward to learning about all the great things Aidan will accomplish in the Indianapolis community! Think Aidan’s role in the University Library is pretty cool? This department typically hires two to three students at the beginning of the fall semester. Check JagJobs for more information on the opportunities they have to offer. Congratulations, Aidan, on being one of the #FeaturedJags of 2018!
