unusual to find a group of students
working in offices on campus. They
are the backbone of many operations,
doing a lot of the footwork that
full-time employees may not have the
time or space for. However, it is
unusual to find a student that fits
in so well and does such a
consistently professional job that
even his supervisors sometimes

Chris Jacobs is that kind of worker.
Jacobs is a graphic designer and
student leader with the marketing
department in UH Dining Services.
Not only does he design most of the

dining areas, he is also the loud
and crazy motivator out on campus
getting people pumped up at Dining
“Chris has made a huge impact since
joining the team,” said Misty

been able to lead a team of fellow

them to become more successful in
their endeavors than ever before.
When he is not leading the team, he
is designing fabulous graphics that

With his talent and passion, he will

afraid to put himself out there to
show the team the best ways of
reaching students. That’s what makes
him such a great leader and
