Campus Celebrity: Tiffany Wallace

Our Campus Celebrity for the month of December is Tiffany Wallace, the director of student activities!

Tiffany Wallace

What is your favorite thing about being part of the Ursuline College community?

The students!!!!!!! It is incredible to see them learn, develop and grow through learning experiences in the classroom, campus activities and leadership opportunities

What is your favorite place on campus?

I would probably have to say Pilla not only because of the students, but because I enjoy the food!

What is one thing people might not know about you?

Let’s see… I do not like being called Tiff amongst my colleagues, but I do love to change the name of others. For example, my student worker’s name is Anna and I call her Anna Canna. I love it! I secretly think she does too. If you change my name to something besides Tiffany or Tiff I will definitely answer.

How does it feel to be nominated as a Campus Celebrity?

Such an honor. I wonder who did this? Someone selected me? Who, me? Not me!

If you could give one piece of advice to Ursuline students, what would it be?

Get Involved! Have Fun! Leave Your Legacy!

Remembering Joan Rivers: courageous comedian, critic and women’s college alumna

IMG_0554Comedienne Joan Rivers, 81, died while hospitalized at New York’s Mount Sinai hospital on Thursday. She was a savvy business woman, mother, over-the-top funny and women’s college graduate (Barnard College, Class of 1954). Here’s Joan talking about her own funeral in her 2012 book, I Hate Everyone … Starting With Me:

When I die (and, yes, Melissa, that day will come; and, yes, Melissa, everything’s in your name), I want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action….I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene! I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don’t want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don’t want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing “Mr. Lonely.” I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyonce’s.
