Mike AloseMike Alose, who runs the Science Hotspot, was one of four LSC-University Park staff selected to receive a Staff Excellence Award this year!

What's he do back there in his corner? Excellent work, obviously-- including mentoring his peer coaches, putting together data reports for Coaching, sometimes getting a chance to create and edit videos as well as run the @tutorlscup Instagram account, in addition to all the day-to-day things to keep the Hotspot going. He's a fantastic go-to resource for all things Academic Coaching!
