Dr. Danny Glassmann, assistant dean of students and director of residence life, begins his day at 6:30 a.m., waking up to the sounds of his two pugs, Ebony and Cooper. After letting them out and feeding them, he usually hits the gym and then arrives to campus by 9:00 a.m.
On your average day, Dr. Glassmann might be teaching a First Year Seminar class and is likely to have a number of meetings, sometimes with students, staff, vendors, or Student Government Association, among many others.
But his life isn’t all about meetings, and the hard work doesn’t stop there. After grabbing a bite to eat with coworkers in the dining hall, he then moves on to Greek housing walk-throughs, Student Judicial Board hearings, and Orientation Leader interviews.
He usually ends his day by attending on-campus events—this particular day it was the Oglebee, which he helped to judge.
