Amber Rose
CSC Office Assistant

Amber is a junior majoring in English and minoring in Comics and Cartoon Studies. While not working at CSC, Amber spends her time overwhelming herself with other activities such as book hoarding, writing stories at high typing speeds, and training to run a 5k just to mention a few. Once she has completed her Bachelor's degree, Amber plans to enroll in a Master of Library and Information Science program so that at some point she can upgrade from being a volunteer librarian to being a paid librarian.
