On this crisp November evening at 5:15 p.m., Marist students have flocked to the gym to try and shed some extra pounds before they head home for their thanksgiving feast. Some students were seen doing laps in the pool, while others were lifting weights and running on the treadmill. Before entering the fitness center I needed to swipe in at the check-in desk located just outside its entrance.
Sitting at the check-in desk was Marist senior lacrosse goalkeeper, Craig Goodermote. Goodermote, who is usually in the gym working out with his team, was watching students swipe their Marist ID’s.
Besides playing lacrosse at Marist, Goodermote also works as an Office Assistant/Front Desk Clerk inside the McCann Center. At Marist, he is majoring in Information Systems/Computer Science and is expected to graduate in the spring.
Goodermote, who is going home for his final Thanksgiving break after his shift tonight, doesn’t know where the time has gone.
“I really can’t believe that I have one semester of college left,” Goodermote said. “It seems like yesterday that I was a freshman and in a few short months I will be graduating. I am going to enjoy the rest of my time here.”
