Hillary Chiarella is an organizer.
“I make to-do lists like no other,” she notes. “My calendar is on my computer, and it comes with me everywhere so I can allocate how much time to spend on each thing and still get everything done.” An environmental engineering major, Hillary has interned with Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper and the City of Buffalo Urban Fellows program. And as a student assistant coordinator for the UB Libraries, Hillary is often the first point of contact within the Libraries for students and visitors.
Working approximately 20 hours each week at Silverman Library’s information desk, Hillary handles circulation transactions and manages online interlibrary loan requests. She also thrives on Silverman’s busy vibe. “Lots of undergrads and international students study in Silverman, especially before midterms and finals. It’s bright and open, and people love it.”
