Today is Administrative Professionals Day. College coordinators or as they were known in the past college secretaries perform a variety of duties outside the scope of a typical administrative professional. They manage mail deliveries, associates, student rooming, the magister’s budget, events, and a variety of student issues. That is just a snapshot because they do so much more. In this vein, let’s look at college coordinators from the past.
If you’re a student, make sure to say thanks!
