Meet the Graduate Assistants: Christina Sweeney

Today’s second fabulous Graduate Assistant in our posts for the Meet the Graduate Assistants Spring 2023 series at the iSchool Help Desk is Christina Sweeney! We questioned this Team Awesome member about her favourite board game, most anticipated/exciting instructional technology, and ideal home base!


Christina, a blue-eyed woman with shoulder-length brown hair, smiles.

Christina, as one of our Illinois natives, comes to the Help Desk from the western suburbs of Chicago, where she enjoys the fact that there are a lot of trees. She is a first-year student at the iSchool in the MSLIS program, interested in pursuing public librarianship in the future.
