As a senior studying Physical education, this is my fourth year working at the Rec Center, but my third year as a Building Manager. It is also my second year as the Area Supervisor of Facilities. The Rec has already changed my life for the better in more ways than I can begin to explain! Ultimately, my goal is to be an NCAA basketball referee, refereeing on the court during the Final Four. I always look forward to meeting new people, so stop by and say hi!
I am a Sophomore here at Montclair State University and I am studying to be an accounting major, hoping to graduate in the next 4 years with my Masters. I have worked one full year as a facilities member and now have the privilege to join the Building Manager staff here at the Rec Center. I am a strong leader and a very understanding person. I enjoy meeting new people and will always challenge myself to meet at least a few new people every day. My favorite pastimes are working out, playing guitar, traveling, cooking and trying something new. I'll never say no to a challenge and I always put others before myself. I look forward to growing as an individual through my time here at the Rec Center!
Hello there! To get things started, I am a 5th Year Senior Accounting Major with a minor in Dance. And if that alone doesn’t tell you that I’m quite a well-rounded fellow, there are a few more things that you should know. In addition to being a Building Manager here at the Student Recreation Center, I’m also a Special Events Director, a member of the C.A.R.E. Committee, and a 2nd Year Executive Board Member of the student organization, RecBoard. When I’m not working (which is rare), I enjoy taking dance classes, working out, cooking things that I see on the Food Network, making origami, learning American Sign Language, and creating videos for my YouTube Channel. If you have any questions about the Rec or MSU or just feel like chatting, feel free to stop me and say hello! You’ll most likely find me dancing around the Rec!
I am a Senior at Montclair State and I am a Computer Science major. I started working at Campus Rec my freshman year as Facilities, and then Equipment Checkout.

Hello! My name is Luis Torres and I am an undergraduate psychology and athletic training student at Montclair State University. I am also one of the many fine building managers at the Student Recreation Center. In addition to the regular tasks that all of the building managers complete, I often help keep the building running smoothly during birthday parties, swim lessons, private swim lessons, sports camps, and club sports events since I tend to work the most on the weekends throughout the spring and fall semesters. I truly enjoy what I do as I am able to work with many different personalities and encourage the well-being and safety of all the patrons and guests of the Student Recreation Center.
