Dorian Hall and colleagues

In his 11th year at UMSL, first as a student and now as a staff member, Dorian Hall (center), 29, says that what he loves most about the place is “walking around and seeing familiar faces and new faces [and] knowing that we’re working together for the good of the next generation of people that are coming through this university.” Colleagues surrounding him here include (from left) Danilo Radenkovic, Carlie Ervin, George Busieka and Natalia Silva Vaz De Carvalhais – all based in the Millennium Student Center.
