Getting To Know You

Getting to Know Malissa Davis of Recreation and Wellness

    Malissa DavisHow long have you been at BGSU? In that time what is the biggest change you have seen on campus.

I am a new BGSU employee, just starting in December 2011. I have heard of many changes that have happened on campus in the past year and I am excited to get out and explore some of them. I am looking forward to attending events at the Stroh Center and exploring the Wolfe Center.

    What do you enjoy the most about your position?

The people I meet every day. Everyone here has been wonderful since my first day. I enjoy working closely with the students, and the faculty at BGSU is the best. I love the variety that my new position brings. There is never a dull moment.

    What is your favorite meal/restaurant on campus?

Pinkberry … I absolutely love it! My daughter introduced me to it and I could not thank her enough. I love anything sweet.

    What is your favorite piece of technology that you cannot live without?

It would be my cell phone. I hate to admit it but if I happen to forget it at home, I feel lost. It is not that I use it all the time but I like to know it is there.

    What is your favorite way to show appreciation to staff and colleagues?

A smile and a “thank you” are one of my favorites. I feel a smile can go a long way and I think it is very important that people feel appreciated. I also like to give cards and bake yummy treats.

    How do you spend your time when you are not at work?

I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy volunteering and helping in the community when I can.

    BGSU has many traditions, which tradition is your favorite?

Since I am new to BGSU, I do not know many of the traditions here but I like the Roll Along spirit.
