Jacqueline Joseph: Friend of the Month

Meet Jacqueline Joseph, our first Monroe Library Friend of the Month for the 2013-2014 school year! Jackie is a senior and pursuing a B.A. in Political Science with a minor in Women’s Studies.

A native of New Rochelle, New York, Jackie is the chair of LUCAP, Loyola’s Community Action Program, and also interns at Loyola’s Women’s Research Center. Jackie loves reading, watching movies, and anything New Orleans. Her favorite book is The Color Purple, and she reads it every summer along with To Kill a Mockingbird. Jackie hasn’t decided yet which career to pursue after graduation, but her options include becoming a consultant for her sorority, joining the Peace Corps, and attending grad school.

Jackie utilizes many of the Monroe Library’s facilities, including our multimedia rooms, seminar rooms, and the Learning Commons Living Room. When Jackie just wants to hang out, she spends her time on the library’s first floor, but when she needs to get serious about studying, she moves up to the quieter second floor.

When asked for suggestions on how the Monroe Library can help to further student success, Jackie said, “I wish the DVD section was alphabetical!” Borrowing an idea from her local library back home, Jackie would also like to see more library-sponsored suggested reading displays to encourage users to check out books that would be of interest to Loyola students.

Thanks, Jackie, for using the Monroe Library, and congratulations on being our Friend of the Month!
