Carroll University has hired, Zachary Staszewski ’11, a Delta Rho Upsilon alumnus (pledged Fall 2007), to serve as the Assistant Director of Alumni Engagement as of August 1st, 2017. After graduating from Carroll, Zachary earned a Masters in Higher Education from St. Cloud State University and served as their Graduate Hall Director. After receiving his degree, he moved backed to Milwaukee where he served as a Resident Director at Marquette University for the past 4 years. Zachary is happy to be back at Carroll after he first came to campus as a freshman 10 years ago. When asked about his return to Carroll, Zachary stated the following:
“It’s a privilege to be back at Carroll in this position! I’ve noticed that while I have my bearings on campus, from my time here as a student, there have been some impressive changes to campus that I have been able to appreciate as a staff member. I’m excited to not only engage with Carroll alumni, but strengthen my roots through DRU and contribute back to the organization being back on campus. I credit my time at Carroll for my current successes and owe a lot of my development to organizations I participated in – DRU specifically. The autonomy of a local organization, while sometimes frustrating, really requires the active body to take exceptional ownership over the group. I grew a lot through planning events, promoting DRU to other students, and representing DRU on campus. As an alumnus of the organization, I’m ready to give back and see my position perfectly positioned to continue building connections between the active chapter and alumni body.”
Next time you get an invitation to a Carroll Alumni event, consider attending knowing a fellow DRU alumnus would love to see you there. If you’re planning to attend Homecoming (which you should), be sure to congratulate Zachary on his new position when you see him at this year’s Homecoming festivities October 6th and 7th.
