Tiffani Lee, Trine senior criminal justice major
Senior Tiffani Lee doesn′t know what the future has in store for her, but she knows her experiences at Trine University will help to shape her path.
Lee is a criminal justice major and psychology minor. She followed in the footsteps of her brother, who graduated from Tri–State University (now Trine) in 2007. When she′s not leading fundraisers at Zeta Theta Epsilon sorority, she can be found working in Trine′s library.
Lee is responsible for setting up feature displays in the library. In October, she created a Halloween display with scary books and movies. She also found some works by local authors and some seasonal décor.
"I love interacting with other students and being able to help them with their projects," Lee said. "I′ve learned some good people skills. I now know how to talk to people in a professional way."
Lee has worked in the library since her sophomore year, and she said the staff has taught her how to catalog and look up information. She′s also getting familiar with ever–changing technologies.
Lee wants to make the most out of her college experience. A two–time cancer survivor, she′s been very involved with the American Cancer Society and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
"Having Hodgkins Lymphoma caused me to mature at a fast age," said Lee, who was first diagnosed when she was 9 years old. "I try to be more positive and to look on the bright side of life."
She′s got a lengthy list of dreams – including working for the FBI and becoming a hairstylist – and she knows anything is possible.
